Never ridden in Okeechobee before - eerie ride with the mist early in the morning on the levee - we were a group of five - Turbo, Robby Stevens and Danny Stevens Jr along with our usual recumbent partners - Ray and Jay - we stayed together with a good pace until about 90 miles in and the recumbents eased up a bit. We met back up with them at the check point and Jay had an incident with a brutal RR crossing - he was cut up pretty bad - we heard later on he went to the hospital - I've heard nothing since. Hope he's doing well. The three of us finished with a riding time of 6:13 - total time 6:52 - we're signed up for Cape Coral and may do the December Brevet also. I have had my fill of sugar cane and canals for a while.
