We were pleased to stumble across History Bike Tampa this week. Florida cities, in general, don’t have as many bike tours as they might. Humid summers and sometimes challenging cycling conditions may help explain that. History Bike Tampa offers monthly two hour tours for free (with suggested $5 donation). Rides are held on the first Saturday of the month and each ride focuses on a specific neighborhood or topic. Bring your own bike (BYOB) or arrange a rental through City Bike Tampa.
Recent rides have been examining the history of the area soon to be impacted by the TBX makeover of “Malfunction Junction” otherwise known as the I4-I275 interchange. If you’ve ever driven in Tampa, you’ve probably suffered this confusing freeway tangle.
Check out History Bike Tours’ upcoming rides and sign up early – rides are capped at 80(!) participants.
