Breakfast Bike Styles--and Smiles
Breakfast bike style
  • 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.

The bike corral

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.
