History Biking in Tampa

We weretbh 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.

Urban Restaurant Tours in Tampa

Florida Bike Tours is currently running monthly Urban Restaurant Tours for the low-low price of $15.  The tours are BYOB (Bring Your Own Bike).  The tours are on the last Thursday of every month and feature a different area of town each ride.  Apparently the last tour sold out at 100 riders!  Small plates at the featured restaurants and a raffle ticket are included in the registration fee.  Seems like a bargain and great way to have some fun on a Thursday night in Tampa.
