The Tampa Riverwalk is a 2.6-mile-long trail on the Hillsborough River. 

Ride along the river to pass iconic Tampa spots like Armature Works, The Tampa Museum of Art, and Amalie Arena! 

If you’ve found yourself at the Riverwalk without your bike, there are coast bikes available for rent–find them here.

There are small, shaded bench areas scattered along the trail if you’re looking for an oasis from the sun.  Near Amalie Arena, you’ll even find interesting educational parks that feature historical statues and wildlife facts.

Bayshore Boulevard is a local landmark and worldwide marvel!  Being the longest sidewalk in the world, this is a place where the locals get their work out on and tourists can enjoy the amazing view of the Bay. 

If you are looking to extend your ride past Bayshore Boulevard, this trail connects to the Riverwalk through the Platt Street Bridge.

Pinellas Trail is 38.2 miles of gorgeous scenery and fun stops. This trail stretches from Tarpon Springs to St. Petersburg. 

We love the diversity of environments you pass along this trail, ranging from being surrounded by nature to city views.  

This is a great place to bike with friends for a day, because of the many breweries and restaurants along the trail. You can grab Greek lunch at the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs or hang out at 7venth Sun Brewery! 

Sunday–Saturday | 6AM–8PM

📍12520 Ulmerton Road Largo, FL 33774

The Courtney Campbell Trail is an extremely special bike trail in the Tampa area.

With its unique concept, it spans 10.5 miles to connect Tampa to Clearwater. This amazing bike trail bridge parallels the Courtney Campbell Causeway bridge.  

Entering the trail, you’ll be surrounded by Ben T. Davis’s sandy beach and lush beach bushes. You’ll even be greeted by jet skis, boats, and sea life from the water below.

The North Bay Trail picks up where the Pinellas Trail ends in St. Pete and runs to Weedon Island Preserve.

If you’re looking for a bike trail with a great waterfront view, this 6.3-mile trail is a must! Plus, there’s a lot of cool stops along the route like Vinoy Park, North Shore Pool, and Coffee Pot Bayou–a great spot to look for manatees.

Bike trails in Tampa are often surrounded by city or buildings, but if you’re looking for greenery, this spot is for you. 
 
The Upper Tampa Bay Trail is a local trail in northern Hillsborough County.  Popular amongst Tampa hikers, this is also a great place for a long bike ride!  You’ll be surrounded by overarching trees and ride over scattered wooden bridges. 
 
We love this bike trail because of the many entry points and amenities as you make progress on the path. There are restrooms, water, and maps for your convenience.

The beautiful bike trail on Davis Islands is one of our favorites. The beautiful houses and lush green grass gives a perfect view while on your ride. Since it runs along the water, you’ll be able to see bobbing ships in the nearby marina.  

You’ll find that cyclists really enjoy its winding trails. The trail extends past the park and turns into long residential bike trails–popular amongst cycling enthusiasts.
