SWFBUD Lobbies For Regional Paved Trail Network

Bay News 9 this afternoon filmed Randy Myhre, owner of SWFBUD bicycle store Oliver's riding his mountain bike on the Bypass Canal Trail.

SWFBUD wants Hillsborough County to pave the trail next to the Bypass Canal Trail from Morris Bridge Road to State Road 60 to help create a region-wide network of bicycle trails that would lead from the county into the city of Tampa.

I will be making a powerpoint presentation on the Bypass Canal Trail to the Hillsborough County Metropolitan Planning Organization Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, making the case that it's just one segment of a trail network that would include the South County Greenway, and the Selmon Expressway Greenway leading into downtown Tampa.

Look for the Bay News 9 report Wednesday during the day.
