Downtown Tampa Bike Trails & Walking Routes
Downtown Tampa Pedestrian Safety
WalkWise/BikeSmart is a grassroots effort to provide pedestrian and bicycle safety education and resources to downtown and the Tampa Bay community. In 2008, 11.1% of pedestrians and 17.4% of bicyclists killed in the U.S. died in Florida, which has 6% of the nation's population. Raising awareness about this important issue is the first step. The Tampa Downtown Partnership has partnered with FDOT to deliver a free Pedestrian Safety Presentation for your business, association, church, school or group. Each attendee will receive a WalkWise/BikeSmart Tampa Bay reflective bag after the presentation and be named to our growing list of WalkWise Ambassadors.
