I Love Riding in the City

NAME: Kirk Tsonos

LOCATION: Jacksonville, FL


Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?

I live in Riverside of Jacksonville, FL. It’s quite the experience riding in the third worst rated city for cycling. I love riding downtown, and near the water. Like most downtown scenarios, it can get pretty hairy—the biggest problem being careless drivers. Jacksonville’s bicycle scene has seemed to pick up quite a bit in the past year. I’m loving the progression and hoping it pushes for more awareness for cycling in our city.

What is your favorite city to ride in, and why?

Orlando. Every time I visit, I have a blast riding downtown and visiting Ace Metric. So much happening in one city. Great events and great food.

Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city… poetry anyone?

Even though my city is rated one of the worst to ride a bike in, I and many other people are fighting against that title to do everything we can to improve and promote our bicycle scene. I have the best of hopes, and so far every thing seems to be going well. I’m stoked on the future of Jacksonville cycling.
