Bicyclists Enjoy Free Valet Parking Service at the Sunday Market Courtesy of the Seminole Heights Bicycle Club.

Under a cloudy sky, bicyclists visiting the today knew their cherished chariots were in safe hands at the Market's innovative bike valet parking area.

The Seminole Heights Bicycle Club -- along with Tampa bike valet czar Jim Shirk -- provide the free service for bicyclists who pedal to the Market.

Several dozen cyclists use the free service -- and enjoy chatting with the Seminole Heights Bicycle Club at the Market. Today was the last Sunday Market in Seminole Heights for the season until it begins again in October.

Alan, I've really been enjoying your blog. I'm not a bicyclist myself, but I always find great info in your posts. Thanks!

Thanks for your comments Chris -- I hope you get involved in the Friendship TrailBridge issue. You don't have to be a bicyclist for that. My most recent post offers tips on talking points to write letters and call the county commissioners.
