Three bridge loop-CCCT-Bayside-Ga­​ndy

  • Sep 15, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • Britton Plaza

Now that the new Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail bridge is open - why not give it a try?  

The route starts off in Britton Plaza, wanders up through some of the friendlier streets in Tampa towards the Courtney Campbell Causeway, then hit the Bayside Bridge, and return to Tampa via the Gandy bridge.

41.6 miles at a mild pace to see what this is like.

    This ride will most likely NOT be done again until Pinellas catches up. For years it was Hillsborough on the Gandy side of the Friendship trail, they finished that up just in time for the bridge's closure. I can only hope Pinellas will be a bit quicker to jump up to that task.

    Drew = thanks *SO* much for showing me how to navigate to the trail from Cypress up around Courtney. I'll concede that the Pinellas side of the 3-bridge ride has room for improvement, but I'm thrilled to have a safe way to get all the way from South Tampa to Safety Harbor/Philippe Park!

    Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail is only done on Hillsborough side. Once in Pinellas, you're in for fair game and on your own. Some very unkind individual on the Pinellas side south of the Bayside Bridge on 49th Street lost a box of tacks, got 3 out of 4 of us with flats, ending the ride after 21 miles and calling for "SAG" support.

    Group, unfortunately I can't participate in tomorrows ride. Work to do. But I am on the look out for future rides in which I can participate. Have fun, be safe.

    Drew - thanks for planning this. I'll do the Gandy first, and will join you all at Britton for the ride - then peel off at Crab Shack to go home via Coffeepot and Pinellas Trail, if that's ok. Hmmm, does anyone want to pitstop at Crab Shack, for that matter?

      YMCA?? I thought the meetup was at Britton Plaza? I'll be at Britton Plaza for the start of the ride and do all of it with you except for the last leg from the Crab Shack over the Gandy back to Britton. oh, AND... I took the 200X over the Courtney last Thursday (for a meetup in Safety Harbor), so I got to check out the new CCCT -- very awesome!

      Susan, Ellen lives about 5 blocks from me, and the YMCA is at the end of my street, making it an easy place for us to meet up and ride the 1.5miles to Britton Plaza, so I got confused. The ride itself starts at Britton Plaza between the bus transit and Publix.

    I would really like to do this ride but am not sure I can ride that distance yet!

    September 13, 2013

    • Drew H.

      Definitely can't if you don't try. If you do and you can't - park it and I'll pick you up. That work?

    • ~KellyM~

      We're going to do a shorter ride. I hope to join one of your rides soon Drew!

    What do you consider a mild pace?

    September 11, 2013

    • Drew H.

      below 17...really depends on the group this is a no drop ride and will be paced to keep people together
