I have always maintained that there are so many more bicyclists in the Tampa Bay area than any of our elected political officials ever acknowledge.
I meet bicyclists all the time -- and sometimes they're not even biking when I see them for the first time.
Like today at the Starbucks on Hillsborough Avenue in Seminole Heights where I posted an April 22 Swap Meet flier.
A young gentleman dressed nattily in a tie said he was Clay from Temple Terrace and told me he is a bicyclist who reads Bicycle Stories every day.
Thanks Clay -- and maybe next time I'll see you on a bike in Temple Terrace which I bike through to Flatwoods Park.
