Summer Brings First Breakfast this Friday

Though you might have been fooled by the weather we've been having this week, summer is here!

Enjoy them while you can

On the Promenade
And that means the first Breakfast on Bikes for the season!

We will be on the Promenade just east of the railroad tracks at 12th and Chemeketa on Friday, June 28th. We'll have free coffee, pastries, and fruit for people who bike between 7am and 9am.

Tell your friends!  Recruit your neighbors.  Ditch the car and its tiresome commute!

Please support our generous sponsors!

As you think about enjoying summer, the folks at Mission Mill put together a nice little map of buildings in Salem that date to the Civil War:

As you'd expect, there aren't very many, and hardly any haven't also been remodeled and/or moved to a new location.  The earliest intact urban fabric and built environment in Salem dates to a couple decades later.

Still, it's interesting to think about.  And since they are too widely scattered for an easy walking tour, they'd be perfect for a bike tour!

Check 'em out this summer.
