Attention ice-cream lovers: Tomorrow is your chance to join Ben & Jerry's co-founder Jerry Greenfield on a bike ride and get free ice cream gift certificates just for showing up by bike.

Greenfield will visit three local Ben & Jerry's shops tomorrow afternoon beginning at the SE Hawthorne location (1428 SE 36th Ave) at around 12:30pm. After that, Mr. Greenfield will pedal a PDX Pedicab across the river to visit two other shops.

Besides riding bikes and eating ice cream, the event is also meant to raise awareness for New Avenues for Youth, a non-profit that provides supportive employment and job training for homeless and at-risk young people in the community. (The Ben & Jerry's shop in downtown Portland (524 SW Yamhill St) is owned and operated by the organization.)

So join an ice cream icon for a fun and easy spin, learn more about a great organization, and get some free ice cream along the way.

Check out the event listing for more details.

    Dang, I\'ve got to be there for this. I grew up on Ben and Jerry\'s, and even remember going to their very first shop (if that memory is to be trusted, I was 8 at the time... I just remember long lines). I\'ll have to thanks Jerry for all the deliciousness he brought into the world, and also why it\'s so hard to find strawberry in pints.
