Clewiston, Fl. RUSA 200km - Saturday, 6th October: Lake Okeechobee Lark”

This is a ride around the second largest lake in the USA. We begin the Brevet in Clewiston, Fl., on the Southern shore of Lake O’keechobee riding East and passing fishing camps on the paved rim of the levee to Moorehaven . Here we encounter a long high bridge going over a portion of the town. This is our only hill on the ride.. Riding the levee is extraordinary in that you are elevated some forty feet above the lake and farmland offering Panoramic views of the lake and wildlife on one side and of farmland with sugar cane fields on the other. We then ride North on CR-78 and ride past more open range and The Okee-Tantie Campground and Marina, located on the Kissimee River just before it goes into Lake O. From there we venture Northeast on CR-721 through the Brighton Indian Reservation on some super smooth roads with wide shoulders and very little traffic. Here you can really fly. At Brighton we head East on US Hwy 70 to the City of Okeechobee and connect with CR-441 and 98 to follow the Northern Shore of the lake Past Port Mayaca, Canal Point, and Pahokee. Out of Pahokee we head South on CR-715 past an airfield which usually has skydivers jumping on most Saturdays and Sundays. We pass several parks along the way back and at Belle Glade we pick up the paved rim again. This portion of the trail ends at the Corps of Engineers facility in Clewiston near Roland Martins Marina. We then travel a couple of miles back to the start at the Best Western.
