This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

The most wonderful ride of the year will take place on December 14 in downtown Tampa! The Winter Wonder Ride for charity is back to help raise funds for bicycles and helmets for at-risk and foster kids in Tampa Bay. The annual event cycles seven miles through scenic downtown Tampa and alongside Bayshore Boulevard before returning to Curtis Hixon Park for an incredible Post-Ride Celebration featuring Grammy Award-winning artist CeeLo Green.  Riders can register now at www.onbikes.org - then come dressed in stunning variations of this year’s tropical christmas theme, “Tropic Like it’s Hot”, for one of the biggest costumed bike rides in the world. This event follows the Annual Bike Build where over 1,000 community volunteers assembled 900 new bikes at Amalie Arena on December 6. Bikes will be donated to various non-profits across Tampa Bay for the holidays.
