Every two years the folks over at Bicycling Magazine get together to determine the best places to ride in the US. This year, Tampa gets the honor!
Their ranking examines everything from census data to expert analysis from the League of American Bicyclists. Locally, Bicycling looks at everything from bike-friendly businesses, to the number of bike share bikes per capita.
With Tampa making the list for the first time, there are a few fun stats that aren’t as easily distinguishable, granting us the honor. The first is Coast’s bike share density per capita. But, the largest contributor to our nomination:
Tampa ranks 6th in Bike Friendly Business Scores on Bicycling Magazine’s top 50 Bicycling Cities.
Tampa was commended for work done in the USF area as well as the start of the InVision master plan build out including the Riverwalk and the Green Spine. There’s still more work to go and we’re certain this won’t be Tampa’s last time on the list.
