Tampa, Florida (October 28, 2014) – As the launch of Coast Bike Share approaches, the City of Tampa will be partnering with the Tampa Downtown Partnership’s Tampa BayCycle campaign, “Tampa’s SPOKESpeople for all things cycling”, to provide free bike safety classes for residents in local recreation centers and parks.
Tampa BayCycle will hold ten classes in November, with additional classes added upon request. As part of each class, a certified instructor will walk participants through the basic “Top 10” tips of bike safety in an informal classroom style setting. Each participant will also leave with important safety gear such as a helmet, light set, or vest.
A list of scheduled classes is below. All classes last one hour, are free and open to the public, and begin at 6:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
Those who wish to attend are asked to RSVP by visiting www.tampabaycycle.com. To request a free bike safety class for your neighborhood association or organization, please visit tampabaycycle.com/events.
Tampa BayCycle promotes safe and enjoyable biking for everyday transportation and recreation for a livable community. Founded in 2007, Tampa BayCycle was created by the joint efforts of the New North Transportation Alliance and the Tampa Downtown Partnership and funded by the Florida Department of Transportation.
