Icicle Tricycles, Active Right of Way and the Bicycle Business League co-sponsored Free Ice Cream for Bikeway Builders on Sept 4. We wanted to show our appreciation to the people building our next-generation bicycle network. We believe this work will benefit many people, and for this we are thankful.
We pedaled out to the NE Cully Cycletrack construction site and delivered our appreciation to the work crew. Our gratitude to these workers was accompanied with sweet frozen fruit treats on a HOT Friday afternoon. The treats were gourmet Mexican paletas/popsicles made in Woodburn, OR by Paleteria Paisanito. We brought many paleta flavors, including: watermelon, limon, coconut, pineapple, rice pudding/horchata, canteloupe, mango, walnut, guava, & two made with Willamette Valley fruit, strawberry & raspberry. We pedaled the paletas by our Icicle Tricycle.
We had some great conversations with the work crew as they enjoyed their treats. This is possibly Portland’s most ambitious bikeway project to date, and NE Cully is Portland’s first permanent cycle track. We were super excited to be able to thank this hard working crew, for making Portland a safer city for all right of way users.
We look forward to delivering free ice cream to work crews building any cycle infrastructure for our future. While the weather is still warm, please let us know if there are any other crews that could receive some icicle tricycle appreciation.
