Mayor Buckhorn Proclaims Monday ‘Ride to Work Day’

Monday, June 18, is not just any ordinary Monday.

Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn has proclaimed June 18 “Ride to Work Day.” Many local businesses, such as Blick Law Firm in Carrollwood, will be participating.

In recognition of the 21st Annual National “Ride to Work Day,” the law firm at 4351 Gunn Highway is hosting an open house on Monday, June 18 from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., and will be offering refreshments, free driver’s license checks and opportunities to win door prizes to all licensed motorists.

“At Blick Law Firm’s open house, we are not only promoting this day with the City of Tampa, but we are educating safety to all those who come by,” said Becky Speer, marketing assistant at Blick Law Firm.

There are many benefits to riding to work on two wheels, such as:

  • Commuting to work by a bicycle, scooter or motorcycle provides an effective way of reducing the rising cost of gasoline while lessening the many harmful effects on the environment.
  •  It also cuts a fraction of the parking spaces needed by larger passenger vehicles, thereby reducing parking congestion in the active Tampa Bay community. As prices of fossil fuels continue to grow, the overall supply of these fuels is diminishing. With efforts such as “Ride to Work” Day we are taking a small step towards a bigger cause in support of the use of alternative means of transportation, in turn benefiting the Tampa Bay community in more ways than one.
