Breakfast on the Bridges (B-on-B) is a proud Portland tradition that Shift to Bikes organizes the last Friday of every month. In honor of Pedalpalooza, it’s happening every Friday in June.
Here’s a report from Carl Larson:
“It was a confusing morning on the Broadway bridge. Commuters who stopped at that delightful bottleneck high atop the Broadway bridge asked a lot of questions: Is it the last Friday of the month? Where’s Timo? You’re out of coffee?
It was a gray, slightly nippy morning and, perhaps as a result, we pumped all our coffee by 8:30! Timo was serving Breakfast on the Overpass with Kiran at the Hollywood Transit Center and many noted his absence. Everything else was there, though: gooey doughnuts, smiling faces, vegan options, smiling vegans, tardy slips, tardy people, juice, kids, bikes, bikers…
There were some new features, though: a man with a mandolin, shwanky pedalpalooza tshirts, and a realtor handing out patch kits. I think he was a realtor. I don’t know. It was lovely.”
