The Okeechobee Bike Trip was a great adventure.  The scouts had to ride two 25 mile bike trips to help complete their Cycling Merit Badge.

All participants completed the bike trip.  Most with sore BUMS,  but no seroius accidents.  This trip completed the Cycling Merit Badge for the scouts after our Withalachhochee Bike trip in May 2003.
