Oops - the word is out.

What started as a low-key, grass-roots cycling event
is gaining momentum as Labor Day weekend

There are no official organizers for the first Labor
Day Spirits and Spokes Tour, a nine-stop biking and
walking tour to downtown Fort Myers watering holes
on Sunday. There are no registration forms and no
press releases for the event.

participating in the tour. "And it's funny because
word is starting to get out there about it that you
really can't stop."
