10th Annual Okeechobee Rotary LOST Ride

The Okeechobee Rotary will be holding their 10th annual LOST (Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail) event on Saturday, 20 April 2013 beginning at 8:00am. For more information, check this link....http://okeechobeerotary.org/

This is a very good opportunity to get a good look at Lake Okeechobee from the top of the dike, in supported ride. Ride lengths from 6 to 56 miles are available. I'll be there, riding my long wheel base Bacchetta Recumbent.

Hi Chris! It's usually good time and they provide a meal after the ride. The only thing missing for the ride is a couple of cold beers....I guess I'll have to pack a cooler and leave it in the truck until we get back from the long ride, then pass them out.j

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I'm planning on it, yeah. Barring health issues, I'll be there. Look for the guy on a recumbent trike with 2 heads.... (Kidding!)

Tom,

My wife will be there with her Rover....I was wondering if you wanted to give it a try after the ride? It's a cool ride, for a trike with only 8 speeds...

Great, I'll see you there. My pal Bill, from Stuart is supposed to be there too, with his TRICE recumbent tadpole trike. I need to check with a couple of my other cycling pals from here in Okeechobee and see if they are planning to attend.
