In Portland, Ben & Jerry’s annual Free Cone Day is a serious holiday that is not to be missed.
And what better way to justify the calories than by riding your bike to as many Ben & Jerry’s locations as you can (before toppling over)? That’s just what Carl Larson has planned for his Free Cone Day Ride.
Carl and his dessert-loving cohorts plan to meet at the downtown location (524 SW Yamhill, near Pioneer Courthouse Square) at 5:00 pm and then “continue our tradition of riding our bicycles to every Portland Ben and Jerry’s and eating lots of ice cream.”
If you’d rather relax while you lick, take in the sights, and let someone else do the pedaling, PDX Pedicab is offering free rides from noon to 8:00pm in honor of Free Cone Day. Jonathan Magnus from PDX Pedicab says “Simply call 503-Pedicab from within the city limits to be picked up and swept away to ice cream delight.”
Magnus’ pedicabs will be serving both downtown Ben & Jerry’s locations (301 NW 10th and 524 SW Yamhill).
To plan your two-wheeled dairy feast, here are all the Portland locations participating in Free Cone Day:
