City of Tampa Partners with Tampa BayCycle to Host Free Bike Safety Classes
As the launch of Coast Bike Share approaches, the City of Tampa is 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 to be added throughout the city in the coming months. 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.
