Free app makes it easier to find Tampa area bike trails

Tampa isn't the most bike-friendly city, but the weather (watch those afternoon thunderstorms!) makes it a no-excuse way to go green and get some exercise while running errands or even commuting to work. That's why University Bicycle Center and Citrus Park Cyclery have partnered with an app developer to create My City Bikes, a free app that gives you a guide to the local bike trails, charts a safe commute to work, gives how-to's on bike maintenance and helps you find local rides. It's all part of a nationwide public health initiative that has set up similar free mobile apps in a dozen cities including two in Florida — Miami and Tampa. The app is free and available on Apple or Android devices at mycitybikes.org. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer
