The Love to Ride Florida Challenge is back and better than ever! Let’s make this year’s challenge one to remember by getting more people riding bikes in Florida than ever before.
The challenge kicks off with FDOT’s Mobility Week on October 21 and runs until the end of November. Mobility Week is all about helping Floridians make safe, active and sustainable transportation choices.
Ride with your workplace, as an individual or with friends and family. Help your workplace top the leaderboards, encourage others to ride, and win amazing prizes. Please join us at the following local events to promote bicyling in Leon County.
E-BIKE EXPO: Presented by the Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Department as a part of Mobility Week, this event is being held Wednesday, October 26 from 5:30-8:00pm in Anita Favors Plaza at 116 West Van Buren Street.

The City of Tallahassee Bike Parking Program installs bike racks in the public right-of-way to encourage bicycling to daily activities such as shopping, riding to school and commuting. You may visit the Tallahassee-Leon County GIS website and view a map of existing bike rack locations. Please zoom in for existing bike parking layer to activate.
While funding is available, City bike racks, installation and maintenance are provided by the City for approved locations. Bike racks cannot be installed in the following locations:
- Narrow sidewalks
- On private property
- On surfaces that will not allow secure rack installation
- Residential addresses
- Locations that have conflicts with storm drains, parked vehicles and utility boxes
If you know of an area that would benefit from having a bike rack within a public right-of-way, please submit a request. Your request will be evaluated by City staff and you will receive a notification of the evaluation within 60 days.
