Hi,

Over the weekend I will be in the Tampa - St Petersberg Florida area. Any recommendations to bike shops where I could loose an hour or two looking around?

Thanks
John

There are several. You could also get a bike and ride Sat morning 8:30 am at the North Shore pool parking lot. There are hundreds of cylists that leave from there on all different rides.

Bike shops
North East Cycles
Revolution
Chainwheel Drive
Lou's

Talk to Ken Fong at North East cycles about renting a bike. http://www.northeastcycles.com/

do we know each other? or see each other out there?

I ride on Sat and Sun group rides from St Pete, and some thursday and tuesday evening rides. Not this weekend though, the flu has me man down, just as I was getting strong.

I don't do may group rides anymore. I just ride for fun.

Right now I am training for the Ride Across Florida.

I ride every day, but most of the short stuff is in the neighborhood or the north end of the Pinellas Trail. (Last year I decided to do an out and back on the Pinellas Trail, it felt worse than a Century with all the starting and stopping)

I do my long rides on the Suncoast Parkway Trail. Very few families riding 3 wide, etc.
