In honor of Florida Bike Month, Bike/Walk Tampa Bay hosted the Tampa Bay Bike Challenge, encouraging people to ride bicycles for any reason including exercise, recreation, errands, and to and from work. Responding to the COVID-19 crisis mid-challenge, the focus shifted to encouraging solo or family rides close to home and the inclusion of logging virtual rides.
The Challenge was hosted on the Love to Ride platform. 356 total riders logged rides throughout Tampa Bay with an astounding accumulation of 58,983 miles ridden and 3,680 trips taken. Leaderboards highlighted individuals taking the most bicycle trips, the most miles ridden, and for encouraging others to ride.
Everyone who logged even one trip is a winner! Check out the Top Five in each category and visit www.lovetoride.net/tampabay for a full list of participants!
