Gadsden Park/South Tampa Ride

  • Gadsden Park

    6901 S Macdill Ave, Tampa, FL (map)

    27.866380 -82.496187

  • Follow the road around to parking by the far baseball fields. Meetup is near the brick bathroom facilities.
  • Morning ride on South Tampa!

    It should be a very nice morning around South Tampa, with low traffic with a tour of some of the best areas of south Tampa.  Should be an easy ride for all  riders so come out and join us on this ride. This is a great ride around Tampa and a chance to meet some new friends!

    We will roll out at 10:30 a.m., so allow adequate time to get there and get organized (unload bike, inflate tires, etc.). This is a "no drop" ride, meaning we will try to stay together as a group. If we separate, we will regroup at each turn in the route.

    When almost done with the ride we could have a light brunch at "A Taste of Boston." In checking a review claimed that they had "THE BEST" blueberry pancakes for breakfast and delicious Philly cheese steak sandwich for lunch! Add in the view of the bay that can't be beat!"

    Proposed route  or  Proposed Alternate Route

    One is through South Tampa, Davis Island and Ybor, while the other is South Tampa, CCC, Hyde Park, Ballast Point...  We'll decide the exact rout to be used once there.

      Bring a light snack, some water and bring a friend!

    Please RSVP here, on FACEBOOK, or both!

    No - wet, rainy roads, Tampa drivers, & cyclists on them just don't mix well. canceling. Come join us tomorrow over in Auburndale for the Van Fleet trail

    60% chance of rain from 3AM to 5PM does not bode well for such a ride. While Patrick Myers may be good with riding in the rain, I'm not and don't believe Tampa drivers are safe enough to be around in wet road conditions. If the roads are wet at my house 3 miles north of start point, somewhere between 0930 and 0945, I'll cancel the ride.

      I usually don't ride in the wet, but I've been off the bike for two weeks watching cyclist in Colorado. You're right about Tampa drivers. I may drive to St. Pete and jump in a group there.

    What are we thinking with weather? I'm still good to ride in the rain. I also think the proposed route is better than Alternate route.

    Sounds like a fun ride. Maybe call the Trek store in South Tampa and see if they want to join also.

      Easy to modify it to swing into one of the stores to pick up additional riders at any of the South Tampa Bike Shops. Just the exact timing may be a bit difficult to nail down.
