I just realized that today’s events last literally all day. From an early 7:00am start for Breakfast on the Bridges to a Midnight Mystery Ride, which has been known to last till 7:00am.
Good luck fellow bike funnists, maybe next year we can get Vivarin to sponsor us.
Here’s a list of today’s events:
BREAKFAST ON THE BRIDGES
Broadway Bridge / Hawthorne Bridge (North side)
7am, 7:00 – 9:00, every Friday during PPL
Not just for Last Fridays anymore! Come have breakfast with other bikey folks and enjoy better views than any coffee shop in town. A year-round tradition since 2003, but more of it – Every Friday during Pedalpalooza!

BREAKFAST ON THE OVERPASS
NE Halsey and 42nd (Hollywood Transit Center pedestrian overpass)
7am, til 9:00 am
Another in a series of occasional Breakfasts OFF the Bridges. You know how fun it is to breakfast on Broadway. This morning we’ll say Hooray for Hollywood. Celebrate the improvements to the Transit Center that is the second closest MAX stop to a bowling alley. Have a ball with the new Bike Gutter. Check the new smart card eLockers and learn how to stow what you roll. All the traditional hospitality of a Breakfast on the Bridge, but suitable for the aquaphobic.
