How Much Time Can You Spend Biking in Tampa Each Day?

Published

on

Tampa scored a 55 out of 100 on Walk Score’s bikeability meter, designating it as a “bikeable” city. Our score is determined by four components: bike lanes, hills, destinations and connectivity, and bicycle mode share. Wondering what all that means? Let’s break it down.

Bike Lanes 🛣️ Walk Score rates this category based on the total length of bike paths and lanes. Learn more about bike lanes or plan a bike commute.

Hill Score 🏔️ Hilliness is determined by the steepest grade within our area, using data from the United States Geological Survey (USGS). Explore the USGS’ interactive map to learn more about nearby topography.

Destinations and Connectivity 🗺️ This metric uses our city’s Walk Score, which measures whether or not you need a car to run daily errands.

Bicycle Mode Share 🤝 This category considers the social nature of bicycling. There’s safety in numbers. Even if a city doesn’t have extensive infrastructure for cyclists, more cyclists mean more drivers are aware of bicycles, making roadways safer.

How Can We Boost Our Score? 🚲 The best way to increase the bikeability of our city is — you guessed it — by biking more. We can improve our community score by learning more about biking in our city.
