Love To Ride

Love to Ride is a fun way to track your rides. You can set goals for yourself, challenge your fellow coworkers, or see how you rank against other bicyclists in the region! You can also post photos, share stories from your rides, and get points for encouraging other riders. Rides can be uploaded manually or synced with fitness apps such as Strava.

For the second year in a row, Bike/Walk Tampa Bay hosted the Florida Bike Month challenge on the Love to Ride platform. This year, 583 participants logged 111,402 miles, nearly doubling last year’s participation. Many riders were from local workplaces: 37 businesses, non-profits, and government agencies of all different sizes participated in the challenge.

Participants logged trips to work, for fun or fitness, to get to destinations, and to ride with their kids. Along the way many shared photos, gave each other high-fives, and posted encouraging comments. Encouraging others, especially new riders, led to extra points, giving people an advantage on the leaderboards even if they didn’t log high miles.

This year BWTB partnered with the outdoor co-op REI, who opened a new store in the new Midtown district of Tampa. REI provided prizes such as commuter backpacks, camping chairs and gift cards, that were awarded by random drawings.
