Portland’s bike-loving Breakfast on the Bridges crew has birthed a new holiday that is sure to become an annual tradition; St. Velo-tine’s Day.
Tomorrow morning (2/13) from 7-9am on the Hawthorne and Broadway Bridges, they’ll be holding the special event where they encourage you to, “Celebrate the day of bike love by showing your bike some love.”
Timo Forsberg — who married his bike back in June 2005 (see photo below) — describes it like this:
“St Velotine’s is a traditional holiday of the People’s Republic of Velorution, marking the day when the venerable St. Velotine first noticed an unnatural passion for a bicycle. Customary elements of the holiday include giving your bike a sexy cleaning, writing your bike a love note, buying your bike a new bauble, and taking your bike to the coast for an intimate getaway.
Breakfast on the Bridges will promote safe cycles by providing free rubbers (patch kits or Pro-Choice, Pro-Child Prophylactics) to any bicycle lovers stopping to breakfast with them.”
Join us out on the bridges for special Velotines greetings, free coffee, pastries, prophylactics, and oh so much more!
