It's Sunday October 2 and only five weeks to the Bicycle Bash Festival to celebrate cycling in Tampa Bay.
I'm proud to work on behalf of 15 SWFBUD members -- 12 bike shops and three lawyers -- who enlist me to increase the profile of bicycling in Tampa Bay, get more people on bikes and show our elected leaders that bicycling enhances our local communities through economic development, tourism, fitness, transportation, healthy lifetsyle and quality of life.
SWFBUD prompted Hillsborough County to initiate and pass a bicycle safety action plan, has represented the voices of bicyclists before many local agency boards and elected panels and puts on the Bicycle Bash every year to celebrate and promote bicycling in Tampa Bay.
I'm lucky to work for 12 amazing bike shops and three lawyers who believe in the SWFBUD mission.
Please shop at these bike shops and use these lawyers. They enlist me to collectively represent their bicycle voices and I urge you to support them. Here they are:
Carrollwood Bicycle Emporium
Oliver's Cycle Sports
Just Ride Bicycles

Street Fit 360
