Annual Everglades Bike Ride a Big Success

The 10th Annual Everglades Bike Ride on April 2, 2017, was a big success with 177 cyclists participating in three separate rides. There were 70 bicyclists who cycled east on the Tamiami Trail to Kirby Storter Roadside Park in the Big Cypress Preserve, returning to SR29 to ride north to Deep Lake and back to Chokoloskee and Everglades City. Fifty cyclists enjoyed the 27-mile off-road route through the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park while 57 recreational riders toured Everglades City, the Smallwood Store & Museum in Chokoloskee and Plantation Island. Everyone returned to McLeod Park for a buffet lunch catered by Triad Seafood Cafe. We wish to thank all our volunteers, supporters and the Everglades community.

Rather than sponsoring an annual bike ride, FROGG will be organizing monthly rides through the Everglades beginning in September (see above).
