Among the amenities being built at Tampa International Airport’s SkyCenter development is a cycling trail.
The Florida airport has constructed a 1-mile (1.6km) long, 10ft (3m) wide pedestrian and cycling trail around the SkyCenter site. The pathway is intended to offer employees the opportunity to take a break, stretch their legs and get some exercise during the day.
The trail will also link the airport to Tampa Bay’s regional trail system, making it possible to bike from Pinellas County to the airport and beyond.
In early 2020 Tampa International Airport was named the first Bike-Friendly Airport by the League of American Bicyclists in recognition of its efforts to support cycling at the airport and within the community.
