On Friday, March 1, 2019 the City of Temple Terrace, Bike/Walk Tampa Bay and the Florida Department of Transportation hosted the annual Bike with the Mayor group bicycle ride and event. Now in its sixth year, the Bike with the Mayor event was the city’s local kick-off of Florida Bike Month, a larger statewide celebration all about bicycling. Over 80 participants, including Temple Terrace City Council members James Chambers and Cheri Donohue, gathered at the Family Recreation Complex to enjoy complimentary bagels, donuts, and coffee before being led by Mayor Mel Jurado on a nearly four-mile scenic bike ride. The route around Temple Terrace led ride participants past historic homes, the Florida College campus, and back to the Family Recreation Complex. Each participant received a collectible event t-shirt.
