Bicycle Safety

Tampa BayCycle Logo

From Tampa Bay Cycle web site:

"RIDE YOUR BICYCLE - Tampa BayCycle encourages everyone to bicycle to work or school, or for recreation or errands, instead of driving.  Tampa BayCycle brings together people who believe that riding a bicycle benefits the entire community.  Bicycle commuters save money and gas, stay fit, reduce traffic congestion, and most importantly have fun.  Celebrating its fourth year of success, Tampa BayCycle was created by the joint efforts of the New North Transportation Alliance and the Tampa Downtown Partnership."

The Tampa Police Department is working with bicyclists to help them protect their bicycles against permanent loss due to theft.

Bicycle registration is a free service that allows officers to safely return lost or stolen bicycles to their rightful owners.  Register your two-wheels today by simply clicking here.
