Welcome Pedal America To Seminole Heights

Pedal America, the new PBS TV show on bicycling and community, came to Tampa Wednesday night and it was my pleasure to show the show's host -- my friend Ira David Levy -- to the places they want to film bicyclists such as along the Pinellas Trail and along Guld Blvd.

Pedal America is also filming the Seminole Heights Bicycle Club on Saturday and I showed them the bike route we will be taking through downtown Tampa and to Hyde Park Village and back to Seminole Heights and also we stopped by The Cottage at 5801 Ninth Street where we are holding a bicycle art show from 11 am to 1 pm in Seminole Heights.

We also stopped by Velo Champ bike store in Seminole Heights where Jordan Miller talked with Ira David, producer Stephanie and Peter about using camera equipment on a bicycle.

Here's cameraman Andrew at the famed Hurricane restaurant on the Gulf of Mexico. Ira David's crew will be documenting the Hurricane.

Ira David is also doing a segment on Ralph, who runs the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary at Mile Marker 13 on Gulf Blvd.
