Winter Wonder Ride.

The Onbikes Winter Wonder Ride is an annual holiday-themed bike ride through scenic downtown Tampa, alongside the Bayshore Boulevard waterfront, before it returns to Curtis Hixon Park for our incredible Winter Wonder Ride Concert and Dance Party. Every year thousands of riders show up wearing stunning variations of the theme for one of the biggest costume-themed bike rides in the world! Proceeds purchase new bicycles for kids and families throughout Tampa Bay.

Caroling with Tampa's Mayor Castor.

In what has become a holiday tradition Mayor Jane Castor and Onbikes team up to make surprise appearances throughout the City of Tampa. Caroling and bike deliveries are done from the festive onbikes 50-foot Gasparilla parade float. Escorted by a full police motorcade, the float is followed by a series of Chadwell Supply trucks filled with brand new bikes for deserving kids. Mayor Jane Castor personally hands them out to children each year at a series of different Tampa Parks and Recreation Centers.

“This is what I like to call the Best Day Ever. Seeing the looks on their faces when we pull up in the float is just incredible. Every kid deserves a bike and it is so heartwarming seeing some of these kids get their first bike ever.”

Santa’s Bike Shop & Community Bike Build.

Each one of the 1000 bikes that we will distribute this holiday season comes disassembled and packed flat in cardboard boxes, and it takes teams to put them together for a child who may not otherwise have a present under the tree. Plus, we fill the arena with holiday music, delicious treats, movies on the Jumbotron, craft tables for children and surprise visitors like Santa and Lightning bug!


Onbikes is proud to support this historic, long-standing Tampa tradition by participating in the Gasparilla Children’s Parade and the Gasparilla Parade of Pirates. Our kid-friendly float is fun and festive and whimsical. It features bicycles as seats and spinning kaleidoscope wheels! Reach out to learn how to participate in the Onbikes Krewe or sponsor our float.

Bike Stock.

Bike Stock is on hiatus until 2024  as organizers pause to plan the festival’s future.
