About Us

Home » About Us

Hi! Welcome to our page!

We (Jeff and Valerie Collignon) took over Florida Bike Tours in September 2013. We are a newly married couple with a love for bicycling, local businesses, the community we live in, and meeting new people.

Jeff is originally from St. Louis, Missouri and went to Butler University for a Bachelor’s degree in International Business. Val grew up on the Jersey Shore and earned her Bachelor’s degree in marketing and an MBA from The University of Tampa.

Jeff and Val work full-time “day jobs” and run the tours as a side business/really fun hobby. We hope that you will come and explore our city with us. We truly believe that the best way to see a city is by riding a bicycle. Although we occasionally wear some ourselves, funny bike spandex is not necessary on our tours as our rides are casual. All types of bikes and riders (ages 18+) are welcome on our tours.

We currently run the Urban Restaurant Tour once a month in downtown Tampa. We hope to expand our selection of tours in the near future and are always open to suggestions, feedback, and requests for private tours. Please email us if you have any questions, comments or suggestions!

Enjoy the ride!
