This year’s Okeechobee Rotary Club’s annual Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (L.O.S.T.) charity bike ride was the biggest ever, organizer, Jim McInnes, said Saturday morning. More than 150 riders signed up for the event. It was the best year ever for pre-registrations, he added.
(We’d like to think we helped with this. Several riders said they downloaded the registration form we had posted with this story. The story received more than 300 hits.)
The weather this morning was just about perfect, except for a wind that was gusting as high as 30 mph from the south. Fortunately, the ride started at the northwest corner of the lake, so riders hit the headwind early enough that they weren’t tempted to ride too far for their abilities.
