Bikes are Awesome

Check out the Biscuit Bike Story here

What is special or different about Biscuit Bike in Portland's eclectic and extensive street food scene? Biscuit Bike combines many very Portland elements: food carts, bicycles, vegan food, and Kombucha. And while there's a small but growing number of bicycle food carts in Portland, Biscuit Bike is unique in its ability to provide both hot food and cold beverages on tap. Also, we accept credit cards via an iPhone app and card swiper—that's something I've always wanted to see more food carts offer.

Is it hard to ride your bike uphill? It can definitely be a challenge, especially when the Kombucha kegs and the propane tank are full! But I've been looking into options for an electric motor to increase my mobile capabilities.

What's your favorite item on the menu? I'm quite partial to the Blue Biscuit, a biscuit filled with "bacon" bits and topped with blue cheese.

Any advice for would-be street food vendors? If you have an idea and want to make it happen, get out there and talk to local cart owners. I picked up useful tips from just about every cart owner I talked to.
