It was a beautiful sight to see the line of bicyclists heading south on Gulf Blvd. in Treasure Island and St. Pete Beach for today's Hand Across the Sand event at the Sandpiper hotel on the Gulf of Mexixo. It was a great bike ride because we were going to an event to speak out against the environmental threat of drilling our Gulf waters. What better way to hit the beach and hold hands against any potential threats than to arrive by bicycle. There were bicyclists from the St. Petersburg Bicycle Club, Suncoast Cycling Club and Seminole Heights Bicycle Club.The Sierra Club put on a great event and kudos to Phil Compton of the Sierra Club for organizing the event. I enjoyed working with Phil to put on the bicycle ride aspect of the event. We started at SWFBUD bike shop Trek Store of St. Petersburg and then picked up cyclists at SWFBUD bike shop ABC Bicycles on Central Avenue before biking out to Gulf Blvd. and then pedaling three miles south to the Hands Across the Sand event. Great everyone!
