In Town Trails???
« on: December 05, 2009, 03:13:10 PM »
Are there any trails near downtown Tampa, for general exercise, tuning, etc.?  If not, I would be more than willing to form or join a group to petition the City for space, dirt, etc.

I think some folks used to do a urban/off-road type ride around there. I've done it a few times but do not remember the route. It mixed a little off road with road but it was mainly grass path type stuff. Some neat sights along the way though.

Have any of you dudes ever ridden in G'ville with the locals?  I was utterly amazed when I did the TDG with them this year at the amount of kick ass dirt/mud/rock/grass/gravel/stream crossing trails IN TOWN!  These guys have really got it good as you can hook up with this trail system damn near anywhere in town.  The TDG was an entire day of jammin' riding, not some wannabe MTB riding.  Would be very cool to have something like that around here but it takes a bunch of city/county owned land in and around town to pull it off.
