Seattle's Pie Peddlar: Piecycle Brings Eco-friendly Treats to the U-District

Max Kraushaar, a UW theater and photography major, spends weekend mornings baking pies in his apartment. At night, he delivers them in the University District via bicycle. The protocal for his business, the piecycle, is simple: Text Kraushaar on Friday or Saturday night (9:30 p.m.–3 a.m.) for a slice ($3) or a pie ($20), and you’ll soon be greeted by an aproned biker bearing homemade pie. Typically, he bakes two flavors (one vegan), which change based on seasonal ingredients and his whim. “I like to keep people guessing,” says Kraushaar, who learned how to bake from a friend and began The Piecycle last fall. This month, look forward to strawberry rhubarb among the growing variety. Those living farther afield can text a full pie order a few days ahead. Kraushaar says he’ll go “anywhere, anytime,” even if it requires a drive (though he prefers two wheels to four). Upon graduating this summer, he hopes to expand, but for now he’s content to bake and bike solo. Text 425.923.6655; facebook.com/thepiecycle
