onbikes has announced the return of BIKESTOCK, an event that will raise funds to provide bikes to kids and families throughout Tampa Bay.

It’s back! The groovy, pedal power event BIKESTOCK returns to Tampa. Open Streets, in partnership with the City of Tampa are all the bike-loving hippies to joyride down Bayshore Boulevard.

Closing part of Bayshore for a biking event

That’s right, Bayshore Boulevard, from Swann to Bay to Bay Boulevard, will be closed for two wheel traffic between 3pm and 7pm on May 22.

Enjoy an afternoon of free-wheeling along the water with friends and family. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in their hippie best.

Free-wheeling along the water is free to the public, but those interested are encouraged you to RSVP.

Event organizers are turning the Tampa Garden Club into a hippie hideaway for the VIP experience. There will be stocked open bars, amazing local food, live entertainment, and everyone involved will groove through the golden hour and into the night. The first 100 tickets are $100 and after that admission will go up to $125 in advance and $150 day-of. All tickets include a limited-edition onbikes BIKESTOCK shirt.

Enjoy the VIP BIKESTOCK experience

Let your love of disco jams fuel you through the evening. All event details, and tickets can be found on BIKESTOCK’s website.

Don’t forget what this event is all about. This Woodstock-inspired day of events will raise funds to STOCK bikes for kids and families to be distributed in Tampa Bay.

onbikes is a Tampa based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed in 2011 when a group of friends organized a community bike ride during the winter holiday season to raise funds so at-risk kids could receive their very first bike. It was an incredible success, and it was then that onbikes was born. At onbikes we are simply doing our part in restoring the self-confidence, health, and overall well-being of at-risk kids in our community.
