Another Request for Best Route

Another request came to us from Linda. Anyone who has a preferred bicycle route from the vicinity of Sheldon Road to Downtown Tampa, please post.

More specifically:
Westchase/Citrus Park area to Downtown Tampa. I was thinking Anderson road maybe??? Definitely NOT Dale Mabry or Veterans.
Then around Kennedy/275 - what is the best east/west road.

Getting from Westchase/Citrus Park to downtown Tampa on a bicycle is always a challenge. My suggestion is to take either Linebaugh or Waters east to Anderson and take Anderson south to Hillsborough Ave. At first, Hillsborough might not sound too great, but it has bike lanes and I bike on it routinely. I'd suggest left on Hillsborough to Habana and make a right. Go south to West Tampa Bay Blvd. and make a left, then a right on Armenia and follow that south past Kennedy and make a left on Platt and follow Platt into downtown.

I ride from Town & Country to Wellswood and Alan's route getting you to Habana is a good suggestion. If you use Linebaugh to get to Anderson, you'd have a bike lane all that way. Traffic can be heavy at times, but I've not had any difficulty in many years on this route.
