Breakfast on the Bridges is the quintessential Shift to Bikes event. It is organized 100% by volunteers and funded with coffee and pastries that are donated by local businesses. It has no agenda other than to make people smile, thank them for riding their bike, and encourage a fun, festive, bikey atmosphere.
A few months ago a national magazine covered it, and now comes word that Transportation Alternatives – a transportation advocacy group in New York City – has started their own version.
They likely heard about B-on-B from our bi-coastal, video making friend Clarence Eckerson of BikeTV. His recent video of the event is enough to get anyone excited about the idea.
Breakfast on the Bridge usually happens on the last Friday of every month from 7-9AM on the Hawthorne and Broadway Bridges. In honor of Pedalpalooza (which starts next Thursday!) you can check it out every Friday in the month of June.
