Riding Tampa

The Tampa region offers incredible opportunities for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Whether you are an experienced road racer or elite mountain biker rider, commuter, or just like to putt around on a local trail, the region can offer it all. There are hundreds of miles of urban, beaches, mountain park and state park trails in the region. Hillsborough County alone has well over 100 miles of relatively easy MTB trails in several designated trail systems including Alafia & Balm Boyette.

All Trails Lead to Riches!

All season long, I am outdoors testing new products and consider them for reviews, some I keep, many I don’t. For the ones I don’t keep, once reviewed and photographed, I give them away to followers of The Outdoor Life blog who have subscribed to my newsletter! Products are typically for Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Kayaking, Camping, and other outdoor activities. Once I accumulate 3-4 items, I use an online random picker and select a name for each item, email you for your address and send it on its way. No strings attached!
