For the second year in a row, onbikes will join the City of Tampa and Mayor Jane Castor for Caroling with Castor, an event where a team of elves, Mayor Jane Castor and community partners make surprise deliveries of brand new bikes to deserving kids throughout the City of Tampa.
“I could not be more excited to continue this tradition with our incredible partners onbikes,” said Tampa Mayor Jane Castor. “The looks on the kids' faces when the onbikes floats pulls up blaring holiday music is priceless. While this year looks a bit different there’s one thing we can always count on – Tampa residents have some of the biggest hearts in the world and they are always there to lift the community up when we need it the most.”
“We are so excited to partner with the City of Tampa in keeping this amazing event alive during what has been a difficult year for us all.” said onbikes Executive Director Sarah Breseman. “Thanks to the support of our incredible community, we were able to face this year's challenges head on, and through this event are able to continue our work of delivering bikes to kids across Tampa Bay. We look forward to seeing all the smiling faces that brand-new bicycles will bring.”

onbikes will join Mayor Jane Castor and multiple recreation facilities delivering bikes and caroling as they go. Caroling and bike deliveries will be done from the onbikes 50-foot Gasparilla parade float, made possible by float sponsor McKibbon Hospitality. The float will be followed by a series of Chadwell Supply trucks filled with bicycles for each and every kid.
