‘Free Ice Cream for Bike Lane Builders’

BikePortland has a cheery report today about a group of appreciative bikers who are on a mission to bring cool treats to workers on bike infrastructure projects. Perhaps we could do something similar for our bike project workers. After all, they are doing important work. Might as well bring them ice cream to show our appreciation (or hot chocolate if “summer” stays this cold…):

On Friday afternoon, as city road crews labored under the hot sun on the NE Cully cycle track project, they got an unexpected surprise. A group of people on bikes and tricycles pulled up to give them words of thanks and free popsicles.The event was pulled together by livable streets group Active Right of Way (AROW) and the Bicycle Business League. Ryan Hashagen is a member of the BBL and owner of Icicle Trycycles, who donated the ice cream. Hashagen says the event is part of an ongoing program they call “Free Ice Cream for Bike Lane Builders.”
