Bike-friendly businesses on the rise in Tampa

Bike Friendly TampaBike Friendly Tampa is a certification program for businesses that demonstrate commitment to promoting and supporting cycling. The Tampa Downtown Partnership has won a grant to provide free consulting to a limited number of companies located in downtown Tampa who are interested in distinguishing themselves by becoming a nationally certified Bicycle Friendly Business. Phase I of the project focused on downtown ground floor merchants. The initial response resulted in earning the City of Tampa #1 status in the state and top 10 in the country!

It’s time to branch out to other businesses in Phase II. If you’d like to be part of Bike-Friendly Tampa, please contact Karen Kress, AICP at 813.221.3686.
