What A Difference 10 Years Make

Just a little more than a decade ago, writer Sharon Wynne at the St Pete Time wrote this nugget about a Bicycle Bash bike festival that I worked to organize. It was the first bike event I helped put on.

That's why I got a kick last week -- 10 years later -- when I biked with the same Tampa Bay Times features writer (the paper has changed its names from St. Petersburg Times to Tampa Bay Times) along the Pinellas Trail and chatted with her about Escape Adventures' new Florida day tours, including the Pinellas Trail.

It's hard to believe a whole decade has passed since that first Bicycle Bash and the launch of Escape Adventure Florida (watch the video and you will see why bicycling in Florida is so beautiful.)

We biked from the Times' office, which is right on the Pinellas Trail, and headed out of downtown.

One of the cool features about the Pinellas Trail is that is also goes right by Tropicana Field, home of the Major League Baseball Tampa Bay Rays.

The Pinellas Trail is a wonderful bicycling experience and Escape Adventures, Florida is proud to make it one of our featured rides.
