Tampa BayCycle is sponsoring two Bike to Work days, on March 5th and March 26th. This year, there are EIGHT group rides to choose from: Seminole Heights, two West Tampa routes, Channelside, Bayshore/South Tampa, Harbour Island, Temple Terrace and Davis Island. All rides culminate with a meet-and-greet at Indigo Coffee in downtown Tampa (514 N. Franklin Street).

Hopefully I’ll see some of you out there — with luck, I’ll be riding on March 26th…this will be the first time since I moved to Tampa that I’m actually working on Bike to Work day!!!
Florida may have celebrated Bike Month back in March, but the events for Bike to Work Week keep coming. From our friends at the Tampa Downtown Partnership:
Downtown Tampa will be celebrating National Bike to Work Day on May 15 with group rides coming in from literally all directions. Participants will meet up afterwards at Indigo Coffee for a free beverage. The Downtown YMCA is offering free showers and the Partnership can supply a bike helmet if requested in advance. See which route is best for you then just show up at the appointed time or contact Karen Kress at (813) 221-3686 or www.tampasdowntown.com (What’s Hot section) for more information. Most routes can also serve as a park and ride if needed. Come join us!

For the fifth year in a row, I’m not working on Bike to Work Day…but I’ll probably still find a way to ride my bike. For the rest of you, have fun and be safe out there!
