Ybor City 

Ybor City a historic neighborhood in Tampa that also acts as one of the city's liveliest entertainment districts.

A favorite among locals and tourists, Ybor City offers a delightful selection of cultural attractions and events, including the annual Cuban Sandwich Festival and the Ybor City Saturday Market. For bike riders and cycling enthusiasts, the city of Tampa also just recently redesigned Avenida Republica de Cuba (14th St) from Columbus Drive to Lake Avenue to include protected green lanes and expanded parking options, making the roadway safer for pedestrians and bicyclists in this growing commercial and residential area of Tampa.

Seminole Heights

Seminole Heights, a quaint, artsy, neighborhood comprised of bungalows and Spanish style homes is a perfect area for residents that enjoy biking. There is easy bike access to gourmet restaurants, coffee shops, and shabby chic retailers with a unique charm. The Second Sunday Morning Market is a wildly popular event and many of the Seminole residents strap on a bike basket and ride over to shop for delicious foods and trendy wares. Seminole Heights is also  home to some of Tampa’s most established little culinary gems like the nearly 60-year-old Bo’s Ice Cream and the infamous Taco Bus, both of which hit the spot after a long ride!
