Temple Terrace “Bike With The Mayor” Day


On Friday, May 16, Temple Terrace hosted its first ever “Bike with the Mayor” day. Bicycle enthusiasts were invited to take a 2-mile morning ride along the winding streets of Temple Terrace with Mayor Frank Chillura. District Seven Director of Operations Jim Moulton and Transportation Support Manager Bob Keller were on hand with their bikes to take part in the leisurely ride that coincided with national “Ride Your Bike to Work Day.” The festivities began at 7:30 a.m. and participating riders received free T-shirts, helmets and bicycle lights (with free installation), courtesy of Tampa Bay Cycle (funded by the Florida Department of Transportation). Temple Terrace City Council members and other dignitaries were also along for the ride, which began and ended at the Family Recreation Complex off Whiteway Drive and included a trek on shady Riverhills Drive and through other scenic areas.
