The Urban Restaurant Tour is Tampa Bay’s monthly social ride to experience the city’s best food and drink. Usually the third or fourth Thursday of the month, a group of 75 cyclists is guided to four local restaurants across Downtown, Tampa Heights, Seminole Heights, Hyde Park, Ybor City, Davis Islands, and surrounding areas.
At each locale, restaurateurs offer riders a small plate of their favorite menu items. Be sure to pedal to the finish, as our last restaurant stop hosts our evening raffle, including $200+ prizes in bike apparel and accessories from our local sponsors.

Advanced registration ensures your spot on the tour, as space is limited and we do sell out.

PREPARATION & SAFETY
BRING YOUR OWN BIKE & ACCESSORIES
WHAT TO BRING
This is a BYOB Event (Bring Your Own Bike) for guests 18 and older.
Helmets are highly recommended. Both front & rear lights are required by law and are, therefore, required to participate in our tours.
We will be checking bikes after you sign in. Please make sure your equipment is already installed on your bike and is in working condition before you arrive. You will not be allowed to attend the event without proper equipment and we will NOT provide a refund due to your own neglect of this law. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Although our guides will keep an eye on the group’s bikes at each stop, Florida Bike Tours, sponsors, and participating restaurants are not responsible for cyclists or their equipment. We recommend that you bring your own lock to ensure the safety of your equipment.
We have asked the participating venues to provide food, not drinks, for our guests. The decision to imbibe is left up to each individual rider. Participants ride at their own risk.
