Breakfast Bike Smiles and Styles 2023
Cascade's 2023 Kaiser Permanente Bike Everywhere Breakfast was a who's who of bike supporters.
Check out our photo album of the big smiles and bike styles of the folks who used our bike valet service.
Judging from their big smiles and bright eyes, everyone who rode their bike to the Kaiser Permanente Bike Everywhere Breakfast had a great time. They came on every kind of bicycle--electric, road, gravel, folding, cargo, and more--wearing everything from business clothing to bike shorts.
May is Bike Everywhere Month, and everyone who pedaled to Cascade's big spring fundraiser showed that bicycling for transportation is a fun and healthy way to start the day.
Thanks to everyone who attended the breakfast to support our collective goal of Building a Bikeable Future. We exceeded our goal and its all thanks to our community! Cascade encourages everyone to substitute some car trips for bike trips in May. If you need any convincing, check out our favorite photos of the folks who pedaled to and from the breakfast. They arrived invigorated and pedaled away inspired.
