Grand Central Baking
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

In 1972, Grand Central founder, Gwenyth Bassetti, joined two friends in opening a soup-and-sandwich restaurant in the newly renovated Grand Central Building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. Their concept was loosely defined but included making their own bread for the sandwiches. They called their little restaurant simply The Bakery. Gwen took on the baking for the restaurant on the basis of a single summer’s experience running a roadside stand with her children in the San Juan Islands, which advertised “Jam, Bread and Vegetables.”
