Bicyclist Danger Zone In Tampa: Platt Street Bridge

Welcome to the Danger Zone -- crossing the Platt Street Bridge in Tampa. When crossing the bridge to reach the convention center, the Bayshore Blvd. traffic's two lanes form the two right lanes on the bridge.

So when you're on a bicycle coming from Platt Street and heading over the bridge, you face the merging Bayshore two-lane traffic on your right -- and you better watch out. It's like a grand prix race course.

OK, got to the right lane. Always an adventure to get there on this bridge.
