Come and join in on the fun! Ride the Lake Okeechobee Levee!!!!
We start at the Army corps of engineers in Clewiston @ 9 AM where there is safe parking. There are rest stops along the way where you will find shade, shelter and some food and drink. The rest stops are about 15-20 miles apart.
The west side of the lake is unpaved so you will need at least a hybrid style bike with 32m m wide tires. Most people ride mountain bikes, but it is doable on the hybrid.
The first day we go clockwise from Clewiston, we have pavement for 15 miles then 35 miles of dirt. After about 45 miles the Pier 2 resort will be a great sight. Hot showers, a pool and cold beer will be your reward. Ph.# 800-874-3744 special FORCE rate of $59/double. Please call and reserve your room and tell them it's for the Big O Levee challenge. If you don't know Okeechobee well there area few restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. The second day is nearly all smooth pavement all the way with a tailwind (hopefully) 65 miles or so. Rest stops again so enjoy..
* Rest stops will be manned by our support staff make sure you tip them.
