The PieCycle

Ryan had an idea to provide ‘take and bake’ pies to Manly commuters; offering a bistro quality meal (in a pie) that can be taken home and baked in 20 minutes. In May 2017 he launched the PieCycle at Manly Wharf. Broomfields PieCycle is a custom made Christiania cargo bike by The Bicycle Import Company, Byron Bay. The PieCycle is a nod and a wink to Sydney’s illustrious pie history and its original flying pieman William Francis King who in the 1840/50s sold pies to Parramatta steamer passengers. It also references the pie hawkers of Victorian England who would sell pies from a barrow or a shallow (trays carried on the head). In 2018 the PieCycle moved on from Manly Wharf to The Rocks Market. Watch this park for news of where it will park up in 2019…
