Okra



  Carolina Cyclers now operates the ASSAULT ON LITTLE MOUNTAIN As the premier century ride of central South Carolina. 

 

Here is a page stepping back in time to 2004. The Irmo Okra Strut Century ride is now history, and so is this web design. We will continue to leave this page on the Yahoo server to direct former Okra Strut fans to the new site.
