Cheryl Stacks, the city of St. Petersburg's pedestrian/bicycle coordinator, tells me there's an Oct. 4 to event to celebrate the opening of the extension of the Pinellas Trail into downtown St. Pete:
All are welcome to a Walk, Run, Bike event on Saturday, October 4 at 10 a.m to celebrate the completion of the Pinellas Trail into downtown St. Petersburg . The event will start at the trestle bridge at the northwest corner of Tropicana Field and continue to Pioneer Park at Central Avenue and Beach Drive. Activities will include bike registration, helmet fitting and safety information. The event also coincides with the opening day of Saturday Morning Market which moves to the Al Lang parking area across from Pioneer Park this year. More details to follow!
