There are so many things to love about Portland, and our bike culture is certainly one of them. Shift, an informal social bike fun group, is responsible or affliated with an awful lot of bike fun in this town, and perhaps the most visible of their events is the monthly Breakfast on the Bridges.
The last Friday of every month, Shift volunteers serve breakfast to bicyclists on the Broadway and Hawthorne bridges. Many bike commuters have come to look forward to hot coffee and delicious pastries on their way to work once a month - and you can't beat the view!

Coffee is provided by Red Wing Cafe, a local fair-trade coffee roaster; and pastries are donated by local bakeries including Red Wing, Grand Central Baking Company and others.

We generally arrive on the bridges around 7:00 a.m. and stay till 9:00.

Join us for this fun, community-building event. Stop by on your way to work, school, shopping, or whereever you and your bike are going. Just stop on by.

It's incredibly humane. Drink coffee or tea from a porcelain cup! Nibble on some good carbs! And chat with someone you don't know about anything you want.

Check out this great video from BikeTV!

It's such a cool thing that other cities are following in our footsteps with free cyclists breakfasts of their own. Yay!!
