Authors have enjoyed a long love affair with cycling.
“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them,” wrote great American author Ernest Hemingway.
Mark Twain, meanwhile, said simply: “Get a bicycle. You will not regret it.”
Twain would no doubt approve of today’s member benefit, which sees Coast members receiving a 20% discount on all purchases at The Old Tampa Book Company in Tampa when presenting the SoBi app showing their ride route.
The Old Tampa Book Company is a gem for booklovers in the heart of downtown with over 40,000 collectible, rare, used, and out-of-print books. In business for 18 years, you’ll find fiction and nonfiction galore in this treasure trove of a store. It’s the perfect place to browse for a leisurely hour during your lunch break or on a weekend morning, and easily accessible by Coast bike.
