If you commute by bike from North/Northeast Portland across the Steel Bridge (or if you don’t mind going out of your way for a bit of fun), you’ll be happy to know that tomorrow, there are several places you can stop and partake in the proud Portland tradition of free donuts.

The first sweet spot is on N. Williams Ave. Brothers Nathan and Todd Roll want you to help them celebrate the opening of their new businesses — Metropolis Cycles and Pedal Bike Tours. Here’s a snip from a message about the event Todd just sent us:

Stop by Metropolis tomorrow.

Grab a donut on your ride to work at our mobile donut dispenser (a cardboard table loaded with pink boxes) at N Flint and N Page from 7:30-9:00 AM.

The location is 2249 N Williams, which is just off the busy Vancouver Ave. bikeway.

Then, if you want you want more, tomorrow is also the time-honored observance of Santa Lucia Day. In Portland, that means the special, Santa Lucia on the Bridge edition of the monthly Breakfast on the Bridges event. Roll by the lower deck on the eastern side of the Steel Bridge from 7-9:00 am and revel in the spiritual presence of St. Lucia (in the form of Portland bike culture pioneer, Timo “Cap’n Pastry” Forsberg).

But wait, there’s more! If you miss the fun at Metropolis Cycles on Williams in the morning, Todd Roll says they’ll be partying all day (until 6:00pm). So stop by on your way home and spin the magic prize wheel, much more donuts, and sip some hot drinks.

Now that’s a happy Friday!

    Wait – does this crown make me look fat?

    For another take on lighting a candle instead of cursing the darkness, this rendering of my adoration of Saint Sadik-Khan:
