On the last Friday of every month, volunteers from Shift do Breakfast on the Bridges. They set up free pastries and coffee on the Hawthorne and Broadway Bridges and greet bike commuters with a smile.
This month Southeast Uplift joined in with a bike safety awareness rally. They showed up with bike safety signs and held them high for all the motorists entering downtown on the West side of the Hawthorne Bridge. It was great to see KOIN TV show up and beam the story back to the viewers at home.
Meanwhile, over on the Broadway Bridge, “Captain Pastry (seen on the right)” was busy charging up weary commuters and passing out superhero trading cards to everyone in costume.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
