    My fav. Ride every morning from the Northshore pool. Stick the weekdays if you want to avoid the weekend warriors. The weekdays have a core group of maybe 20. Everyone looks out for each other.

    I do the Gulf Beaches from Treasure Island, cross the Pinellas Bayway to Fort DeSoto Park and back. Be very careful on Bayway bridge!

    Even though I dont live in Florida anymore . (A Texas resident but I miss FL every day) When I went to school at USF we would ride through some desolate roads to Lutz and back. I remember a road called 7 mile hill. We practiced crits around the campus((Alumni, Laurel,Holly and Maple). every once in a while we would go down to Ybor City and do sprints between the lights--but that was all 25 years ago.

    Gnats. That's the reason I don't ride there. I felt like I was getting sandblasted and had to wash them off myself when I got home. The Citrus Park part isn't bad. It's the Town N Country part that has bugs.
    Live in the Tampa Bay Area?
    Want to meet some people, join group rides, find local resources for cyclists?

    oh god, gnats. I absolutely hate them. Any way to keep them out of face?
    A fixed gear bicycle is 99 percent mechanically efficient.

    I usually ride downtown burg friday nights because of the traffic. Not much fun for roading, though.
