What a great afternoon! Portland Pedicabs had a wonderful time providing pedicab hay rides for Salt and Straw, NE Alberta street’s farm-fresh, handmade gourmet ice cream shop. Salt and Straw was hosting an amazing Fall Festival, with a live band and Portlandia Pedicab Hay Rides!
The Fall Festival was held to celebrate harvest and the new seasonal flavors of Salt and Straw. They had a line out the door all afternoon! It was a beautiful October afternoon in Portland to enjoy some Lemon Basil Sorbet or Pear Blue Cheese.
Kim Malek, the founder of Salt and Straw, had brought fresh hay from her backyard farm. We worked together to fashion some mini haybales for our pedicab seats.
Everyone enjoyed their Salt and Straw ice cream as we pedaled them in our Pedicab Hay Rides. We pedaled around 30 pedicab trips around the neighborhood from the Salt and Straw Scoop shop at 2035 NE Alberta St. The favorite Pedicab Hay Ride was to pedal down Alberta and then tour back on NE Going, the nearby Neighborhood Greenway.
Our Portland Pedicab Hay Ride passengers were young and old and included folks from many neighborhoods in Portland and even a gal who had ventured from Salem to make her afternoon adventure be Salt and Straw’s Fall Festival! As I rode her in our pedicab, she told me that, “The Fall Festival was great! I loved the band and this pedicab hay ride! Salt and Straw has such unique fresh flavors with spirit.”
Portland is a small town and we ran into many people we know.
I was also excited to pedal a couple who we had pedaled their wedding earlier this summer!
Pedicabbing in the neighborhoods of Portland is always different than being downtown. The best was when we pedicabed some folks along NE Going, Nd we came across people walking their goats. It was an “only in Portland” moment, until we realized we were all in a Pedicab eating Ice Cream in October!
Thanks to Salt and Straw for such a wonderful Fall Festival! Portland Pedicabs loved pedaling all your guests and friends for Pedicab Hay Rides around the neighborhood.
