This East Volusia News article describes a recent motorcycle ride for charity in honor of Bruce Rossmeyer, the founder of Biketoberfest. Over 1200 motorcyclists and passengers took part in the ride through Deland on October 11 in the 15th annual Daytona Harley-Davidson Ride for Children. The annual event raises money for Camp Boggy Creek, which has helped more than 40,000 children struggling with chronic or life-threatening diseases and their families since the facility opened in 1996. Mr. Rossmeyer was one of the founders of the annual ride and Camp Boggy Creek. He was also one of the driving forces behind Biketoberfest—a very popular annual event in Daytona and surrounding communities. He also owned several successful Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealerships.
As reported in the Miami Herald, a 50-year-old London woman died from injuries she suffered in a central Florida hit-and-run motorcycle accident on U.S. Highway 192 in Lake County in August. She was a passenger on a motorcycle and she and the driver were both thrown from the motorcycle when struck by the car.
