Tune In WED At 10 AM For the WFLA-TV/Channel 8 Daytime Show
Tune in WEDNESDAY at 10 AM for the Channel 8/WFLA-TV "Daytime" morning show when Brian Eckman, owner of SWFBUD member store Carrollwood Bicycle Emporium, and I appear on the TV show to talk bicycling trends. I will be biking my commuter errand bike right into the studio and Brian will be there with the latest in bicycles and gear. We filmed the segments this morning and was told it will run during Wednesday's 10 am show. Daytime is nationally syndicated so it will run in 100 cities across the country, such as West Palm Beach.
Also, the St. Pete Times ran a short story last week on SWFBUD asking the city of Tampa to think of bicycles as transportation, not just recreation, at a Feb. 26 city meeting. Councilwoman Linda Saul-Sena wrote a memo out of that meeting. Read Saul-Sena's memo on the topic.
