The majority of the club's race results and pictures are on our Facebook page. It is much easier to post to FB, along with numerous pictures. Plus, everyone who is a member can post their own pictures and results. For our local events, I will continue to post them here. (Please note that sometimes the race results do not post correctly such as the 2011 Swamp Run. I apologize that they are a " jumbled up mess"
but after numerous attempts at trying to type them on individual lines, I finally gave up.)

If you are on FB but not on the club's FB page, go to Okefenokee Track Club and click "Like".
(I was not able to change the page to Okefenokee Track & Cycling Club
without starting over, but I was able to use our new logo.)

2007 Honeybee Festival Bike Metric Century

On Saturday, October 6, several members of the track club & Satilla Cycling Club participated in a Metric Century (62 miles) bike ride during the annual 2007 Honeybee Festival. Partially made famous by Ray Steven’s “Shriners Convention”, Hahira, Georgia hosts this event, which drew thousands to partake of the food, shop for arts and crafts, and enjoy the entertainment.

The bike tour took the riders through Lakeland, the City of Murals, which depict the early life in Lanier County. The next stop was to the Nashville, the City of Dogwoods, and beautiful Berrien County. Then to Adel in Cook County, the home of scenic Reed Bingham State Park. And finally, back to Hahira and the welcoming throngs of supporters, including the Illustrious Potentate, Coy, Bubba, and the whole delegation. (by Ron Crosby)
