From Hillsborough County:
Hillsborough County and the South West Florida Bicycle United Dealers (SWFBUD) have announced that the 2011 Bicycle Bash Festival will he held on Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Flatwoods Park, 14302 Morris Bridge Road.

The Bicycle Bash is a fun day to celebrate bicycling, enjoy music, and eat food at Flatwoods Park, where both road bicyclists and mountain bikers enjoy riding. In addition, SWFBUD will give its annual SWFBUDDY Awards to local residents who have helped the cause of bicycling in the Tampa Bay area this past year. A swap meet, activities for kids and bike activities will be going on throughout the day.
This is the fifth year for this event, which attracts bicyclists of all kinds of backgrounds: casual neighborhood bicyclists, roadies, mountain bikers, urban cyclists, BMX enthusiasts and bike commuters.
The event sponsor, Cure on Wheels, hosts a fund-raiser bike ride that raises money for local cancer causes. The Cure on Wheels ride will be held on Nov. 5, also at Flatwoods Park, just one day before the Bicycle Bash.
