2008 Leesburg BikeFest

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
