Lake Okeechobee Classic Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is the longest ride in the book, more than 100 miles. If you take it between the middle of May and the middle of October, you will feel that it is the longest ride of your life; it is very flat, and will be hot and windy. I recommend that you alternate riding the roads with the trail on top of the dike around the lake. Each has strong points. This is indeed a challenging ride, so keep your eyes open and let it all hang out.
Traffic and hazards: On the roads, the traffic will be light. Fast but light, with the occasional big truck. On the trail, there will be no traffic except for an occasional slow-moving maintenance vehicle. At the periodic nodes with boat ramps, facilities, and shelters, you must watch for traffic crossing the trail, but these points are easily identified in advance because the terrain is incredibly flat."
