Voodoo’s new ‘bike doughnut’ honors CCC’s 20th year

The Community Cycling Center’s commemoration if their 20th year just went to a whole new level. The beloved bike advocacy group announced today that Portland’s iconic Voodoo Doughnuts has created a special menu item in their honor: the bike doughnut.

From now until August 2nd, not only can you order and eat a doughnut featuring your favorite transportation mode, you can do so while knowing that a portion of the purchase price is being donated to the CCC.

Voodoo founder Tres Shannon said in a statement today that he wanted to do this because, “There’s nothing like the joy of getting your first bike and the freedom it entails.” And there also seems to be nothing like biking and eating doughnuts, as Mr. Shannon’s pink boxes have helped fuel countless rides over the years.

If you’re interested, the CCC tells us their bike doughnut is filled with chunky apple filling and topped with vanilla frosting. I’ll take a dozen!

Roll over to Voodoo at 22 SW 3rd (downtown) or their northeast location at 1501 NE Davis to get yours today (and tomorrow, and the day after that if you’d like).

As I was waiting in the massive line for car donuts, I notice people standing in a shorter line for bike donuts on my right and became really irritated. I’m always having to wait for people to get their bike donuts! Also, they weren’t wearing helmets. Argh!!!

And they probably didn’t pay anything for that line either!

Looks like this donut would do well at Voodoo’s Colorado location as well!

if we’re saving the planet with bike donuts can they at least be vegan?

I plan on eating several of those and heading out for a long ride in the heat. It should be quite colorful when they come back up.

Not impressed with voodoo donuts.

Voodoo seems like the antithesis to biking to me…but hey, if it goes to improve the service of some of the smug salespeople I’ve encountered at CCC (not all as one guy there is super nice, but a few have some serious attitude issues), that’d be worth it.
