Mark and Melissa Burger mounted their bicycles Sunday, looking forward to touring Marco Island for the first time. They drove to the island from Lake Mary, Fla., and stayed at a local hotel to be sure they were up and ready for the 8 a.m. start of this year’s Tour de Marco.
The Burgers joined 75 other riders on a planned 30-mile tour of Marco Island, Key Marco and Goodland. In all, nearly 180 riders joined the 5-, 15-, or 30-mile segments of the 3rd Tour de Marco. Rides were not designed as races nor were they timed or scored.
