A record crowd of more than 175 cyclists took part in the 10th annual Everglades Bike Ride to benefit Friends of the River of Grass Greenway. Seventy cyclists pedaled the 62- mile route, 50 took up the off-road challenge through the Fakahatchee Strand (pictured here), and 57 recreational cyclists toured Everglades City, Chokoloskee and Plantation Island. Everyone returned to McLeod Park for a seafood lunch catered by Triad Seafood Cafe and homemade calamondin cake.
