blogTampa Water Bike Adventure

March 29, 2015

One of the best views of the city.

Not too long ago, I noticed a Tampa Water Bike Co. had set up shop downtown. I like bikes, I enjoy water and I love Tampa, I couldn’t think of a drawback or reason not to try it. To me it looked like it took canoeing, put the workload on the legs and made it a little more strenuous. Today, I finally tried it and my assessment was fairly accurate and it was a blast.

Admittedly, they weren’t the easiest things to maneuver. I am so accustom to the feel of land bikes, I thought it would be much more similar in feel. Not so. Once you get the hang of peddling, it’s a fun ride. It was quite enjoyable seeing the city from a different point of view, made even better by the fact that I was getting a bit of exercise in at the same time. At first, having people yell and point at you from the Riverwalk was a bit embarrassing. After the first few people, it just became part of the activity. Striking up conversations with passers-by ended up being an added perk of the experience.
