A group of cyclists intends to put a TriMet twist on this Friday’s Breakfast on the Bridges. The event (which happens on the last Friday of every month) usually consists of volunteers handing out free coffee and pastries to early-morning bike commuters on the Hawthorne and Broadway Bridges. However, in light of recent events organizers have decided to fight fire with flour.
They plan to gather at the westbound Hawthorne Bridge bus stop (the one before the overpass) from 7:30-8:30 this Friday morning with bikes and signs. When a bus pulls up to the stop, the cyclists will board and hand the driver a donut with a label on it that says, “Thanks for sharing.” I can’t even imagine the look on the drivers’ faces when they realize what’s happening.
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
