Sun August 2, 2020 Tampa, FL US 33611 Directions


10:00AM EDT - 1:00PM EDT

Alex Kaptzan was a passionate bicyclist.  Please join us in honoring and celebrating Alex on Sunday, August 2 with a casual, fun and friendly bike ride. 

Our bike ride will start in the parking lot of the South Tampa YMCA at 10:00 am (please arrive by 9:30 am).  With police escorts for safety, we will bike along Bayshore Boulevard and onto Davis Islands, where we will stop for a break at Seaplane Basin Park (approximately a 6 ½ mile bike ride).  At the park we will provide light snacks and the opportunity to purchase ice cream and popsicles from a local food truck.  Then, we’ll bike back to the South Tampa YMCA to finish our celebration.  

Since we will be outside, masks will not be required, but we will need to practice social distancing.  Please be responsible and stay safe.

Bike helmets are recommended.

This is not a fund-raising event…just a group of friends getting together to celebrate the wonderful life of someone that touched us all so deeply.


Optional - RIDE FOR ALEX t-shirts are available for purchase through this registration site. Men's and Women's sizes are available and orders must be placed by July 22.  If you purchase a t-shirt during registration, we will hand them out the morning of the ride and we hope that you will wear it on the ride.


The RIDE FOR ALEX will begin at the South Tampa YMCA, which is located at 4411 S Himes Ave, Tampa, FL 33611. We will then all ride together under police escort to the Seaplane Basin Park (650 Severn Ave, Tampa, FL 33606) on Davis Islands. After some light refreshments, we will ride back to the South Tampa YMCA.
