I put on large bicycle rides for a living. (A thousand people all pedaling to the same place on the same day...) We do a lot of food, and two things we always serve are bagels at the start line, and homemade-style pie in a variety of flavors at one of our snack stops. We also like to buy local whenever we can. We pay for this stuff -- not seeking a donation,

I've been searching for a place to buy 25 dozen bagels and 50 - 100 pies this summer between, say, Poughkeepsie and Germantown (either side of the river) and I've had no luck. They don't need to be from the same place.

What I DO know:

o All of the bagel places I've found so far don't bake them there -- they're buying them elsewhere.

o Culinary Institute can't/won't do it.

o Deising bakery in Kingston is always a favorite to drop by for a cider doughnut or a bear claw, but I am unimpressed with their pies. (If you think I'm wrong feel free to kick me!)

o The lovely bakery in Tivoli politely declined. (My hat is off to them -- the owner/baker said, "We have a small kitchen and every day we sell out and we don't really want to take on more.")

SO... has anyone found a favorite pie or bagel in this area? New Paltz is getting kinda off the track, but I would consider it if necessary).

We want bagels in the usual flavors.

The pies must be a variety of flavors and the place must be able to provide 50 - 100 pies. (So that wonderful grandma you know who occasionally sells ONE pie isn't going to work here!)

Your advice welcome here!
