2008 Leesburg BikeFest

Dan "Dano" Jenkins of Tavares, watches as bikes roll down Main St. in Leesburg Friday. Tens of thousands of motorcyclists roared into Leesburg Friday for a bike rally that gets little attention compared to the likes of Daytona’s famous Bike Week. Despite toiling in obscurity, organizers of the Leesburg BikeFest say their event, is on a par with the best including Bike Week and the famed Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, S.D. Though it doesn’t get the same recognition, BikeFest has become every bit a tradition locally as the granddaddy of Lake County festivals, the Mount Dora Arts Festival. TOM BENITEZ, ORLANDO SENTINEL
