A few weeks ago Ivan, owner of Viitals healthy bakery on Florida Avenue, contacted me to see if I could help him get a bike rack. They cost about $300 and he couldn't afford one.
So Ivan contacted SWFBUD for help. I got in contact with Karen Kress at the Tampa Downtown Partnership, who is friends with a school program that makes bike racks.
They fashioned a bike rack and dropped it off at Ivan's bakery about a week or two ago.
Ivan is happy with the new bike rack.
