SHBC Brings Out The Bicyclists At The Seminole Heights Sunday Market
It was brisk and breezy with winds out of the northeast when I set up the Seminole Heights Bicycle Club tent with Jim Shirk at the Seminole Heights Market on the Hillsborough High School front lawn.
Susie Cooke of the Tampa Bay Freewheelers led a group of cyclists to the SHBC tent, then a contingent of cyclists from the USF Bicycle Club showed up -- motivated by the $5 food vouchers offered by Mr. Shirk -- Florida's reigning Bicycle Volunteer of the Year.
Good to see so many interested in bicycling stop by the SHBC tent at the popular Sunday market.
They came by bicycle built for one and bicycle built for two.
The USF Bicycle Club came with Dr. Ed Hillsman and Jessica Brenner to the market. They parked their chariots at the bike club valet, administered by the king of the corral -- Mr. Shirk.
