Breakfast Bike Styles--and Smiles
The variety of bicycles and bike styles at Cascade's Bike Everywhere Breakfast was amazing to behold.
Scroll down to see photos of the heroes who pedaled to the event--and left with a smile.
If Cascade's Bike Everywhere Breakfast was the Oscars, the bike corral would be the red carpet.
Instead of limos there were bikes of every style: electric, cargo, commuter, folding, carbon fiber, recumbent, steel, titanium and aluminum. There were handmade frames and fancy road bikes, garage sale specials, and refurbished clunkers.
Instead of tuxedos and gowns, people dressed in colorful cycling kits and hi-viz commuter-wear, jeans and street clothes, rain jackets and business casual, T-shirts and shorts.
All left with a smile because, as Executive Director Lee Lambert told the audience: "bicycles are magic." And all people on bikes are beautiful.
Former SDOT director Sam Zimbabwe rode his Faraday electric bike.
Cascade Board Co-Chair Casey Gifford told the audience about her experience being hit by a car, and how "bike infrastructure matters."
