This Friday, Elm City Cycling’s monthly free breakfast event will unite sustainable transportation with sustainable power. The breakfast, which last month brought out a record one hundred cyclists, will be sponsored by Phoenix Press, New Haven’s home-grown print shop powered by its own wind turbine to provide clean, renewable energy for its operations. All kinds of cyclists are expected on all sorts of conveyances: sleek racing bikes, practical hybrids, folding bikes, cargo bikes, a pedicab and perhaps a unicycle. Phoenix proprietor Brian Driscoll will address the gathered throng briefly around 8:30 a.m., and we’ll be awarding our “Commuter of the Month” certificate to Paula Moody, executive director of the St. Francis Home for Children in New Haven, who bikes in from Middletown.
