BREAKFAST Better by Bike is an annual Local Motion event on or near National Bike to Work Day. Visit a participating coffee shop by bike, and you'll get a free treat or discount—just for showing up on two wheels!
BREAKFAST BETTER BY BIKE 2016
Here's how it works. On one of the two event days, use your bike to visit your favorite participating coffee shop. Show your helmet, and you'll get a free coffee, a free baked good, a discount on your order, or some other perk at the discretion of the shop. (It's different at each shop.)
And if you post a photo of yourself enjoying your bikeable breakfast on the BREAKFAST Better by Bike Facebook page, you'll be entered to win a $50 gift card to the store of your choice!
This calendar displays all public meetings on any of Local Motion's calendars. If there is an important meeting about something related to walkable, bikeable communities that isn't shown here, please add it!See all events

This Election Day, Burlington voters have an historic opportunity to jump-start a walkable, bikeable future. A "YES" vote on questions 1, 3, and 4 will fund reconstruction of Burlington's bike path, sidewalks, and streets for 21st century transportation and open the door to replacement of the failing downtown mall with a vibrant multimodal development that reconnects our broken street grid. Question 6 raises important questions about the future of the lakeshore bike path. Add your email below to join the call!Sign up
