From bikes, strollers, dogs, and pedestrians, there was a great turnout for the downtown Tampa Cyclovia!

On Sunday, October 19, the District Seven office teamed up with the City of Tampa, the Hillsborough County Metropolitan Planning Organization, the Tampa Downtown Partnership, the Tampa Bay Lightning, Creative Loafing Tampa Bay and other community partners to bring “Cyclovia” to the streets of Downtown Tampa. In keeping with the tradition of original Ciclovia events in Bogota, Columbia, State Road 60 (Kennedy Blvd) was temporarily closed and transformed into an “open road,” a car-free environment for families to run, bike, and play. The event was a huge success, and included several bicycle/pedestrian safety training presentations, helmet fitting stations, interactive street games, food trucks, “slow” bike races, scavenger hunts, bicycle decorating stations, live music and other activities to promote safety and awareness of bicycles and pedestrians on Florida roadways. There was even an “Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow” flyover for the thousands of attendees on the streets below!
