The Real NEW Tampa -- We're A Growing Bike Town

Tampa is changing. More people are riding bicycles -- all types of bikes. Tonight, I pedaled five miles from Seminole Heights to downtown and hooked up with a Critical Mass Ride, which appeared to have drawn about 80 cyclists or so. They were an assorted bunch these bicyclists who gathered at Curtis Hixon Park. There were the helmet-less guys on fixies and young women on mountain bikes and older folks on hybrids and even a young turk on a high bike shown in photos below. But the fact is that there is a real NEW Tampa -- one where people want to enjoy riding their bicycles.
