Tampa is the #1 City for Bicycle Friendly Businesses
Tampa now ranks number one in the nation for number of Bicycle Friendly Businesses following the January 2021 awards by the League of American Bicyclists, the leading organization for bicycling advocates since 1880. There are 66 certified Bicycle Friendly Businesses (BFB) in Tampa following the awarding of nine new businesses in 2021. Eight businesses are in Westshore: AECOM, Atkins North America (new), Cigar City Brewing, McKibbon Hospitality and their Avion Park hotels Hampton Inn & Suites, Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites, and Tampa International Airport. AECOM and Cigar City are silver level honorees. The remainder are bronze.

The BFB program requires businesses to support and promote cycling to their customers, employees, and the community by providing bike parking, safety education, and promotions for retail customers who arrive by bike.
