Hub Grub Bike Ride in Seminole Heights this Saturday
This weekend, the Seminole Heights Bicycle Club is hosting a biking tour in our neighborhood to visit the budding restaurant and pub scene. There are some old faves and new haunts, and the weather should be awesome for a ride. Here's the plan and what do you know - it looks like it will pass by a little known shop called Tampa Street Market!
Here's the post from Alan Snel at Bicycle Stories:
"The inaugural Hub Grub Bike Ride -- the Seminole Heights Bicycle Club's bike tour of 8 Seminole Heights restaurants -- is set for Saturday. Please start gathering around 2:30-2:45 PM as the ride leaves promptly at 3 PM from the Garden Center, 5800 Central Avenue.
The eight restaurants are not too far from each other. But I tried to design a bike route that includes several miles of biking while also keeping off Hillsborough Avenue, which can be dicey for a bicyclist in the I-275 entrance and exit ramps area. Here is the line-up of restaurants and our bike tour:
START: Garden Center, 5800 Central Avenue. Central Avenue south to Osborne, make a left Osborne to Nebraska Avenue
MILE 1: Reservations Gourmet-To-Go, Nebraska/Osborne corner Nebraska north to Giddens, make a right, then a quick left into Taco Bus back parking lot
MILE 1.5: Taco Bus, 913 E. Hillsborough Walk bike through crosswalk across Nebraska and head south Right on Frierson, left on Taliaferro, right on Osborne, right on Central Avenue
MILE 2.9: Starbucks, Central/Hillsborough north on Central to Hanna, make a left, go through Florida Ave. intersection, left on Tampa Street, left on Idlewild, make a right into Front Porch side parking lot
MILE 3.9: Front Porch, 5924 N. Florida Ave. south on Florida Avenue to Bungalow Bistro/The Refinery
MILE 4.4: Bungalow Bistro/The Refinery, 5137 N. Florida Avenue You can bike right through the side door of the restaurant and out the other side doors! Cross the street and bike south on Florida Avenue for only a minute or two.
MILE 4.6: The Independent, 5015 N. Florida Avenue Go next door to Cappy's
MILE 4.6: Cappy's, 4910 N. Florida Avenue south on Florida into Highland, make a left on Osborne and go through Florida and Central intersections to Nebraska Avenue, make a left and go 1/2 mile
MILE 5.9: Ella's, 5119 N. Nebraska Avenue reverse route and head back to Garden Center. Nebraska, south to Osborne, right turn and go to Central Avenue; right turn and back to Garden Center.
