Breakfast on Bridges video segment

bikescape20060224.jpg

Well, though the blog seems to be more about bicycling than hen-wallering lately, I must add another bike-related event to the stew. Last Friday Holly and I participated in another fabulously successful Breakfast on the Bridges, wherein a passel of volunteers serve hot coffee and donuts and pastries to cycle commuters on their way to work. It was a beautiful sunny day and many folks stopped for a tasty snack and some conversation. A fellow named Clarence, who does a TV program called BikeTV, was there with his camera, and has produced a short segment about Breakfast on the Bridges. Holly and I both make an appearance, as well as the fabulous (and vegan!) Rise Up Doughnuts.

The photo above is from February’s event. Also a nice day.

    Hi Karol, I am not sure whose idea this was originally. It is part of Shift to Bikes, a local bike advocacy organization. Their web site is http://www.shift2bikes.org.
