On the afternoon of August 9th, AFRICYCLE Executive Director Ben Voss ventured ahead of his charity bicycling team and arrived in the Village of Webster. Members of the AFRICYCLE group had experienced their most difficult weather day of their charity ride around Lake Ontario as they were pounded by heavy rain and thunderstorms. As they rode around the southeastern portion of Lake Ontario they experienced hours of constant heavy rain, wind and storms. The group was supposed to bed down at Webster Park, but due to the riders being tired and soaked to the bone, Ben was looking for a dry place for them to sleep. After inquiring at some local Village businesses, a citizen advised Ben that the Webster Fire Department may be able to assist. Ben arrived at the Enderlin Station on South Avenue and asked for Chief Akins.

Chief Akins was contacted and advised of the group's predicament.
Chief Akins graciously invited the group to spend the night at the Enderlin Station where they could cook their dinner, take a shower and dry their gear. The very professional and polite group was welcomed into the station and set up "camp" in the training room. Many members of the Webster Volunteer Fire Department, led by Lieutenant Bryan Mason, assisted the group where they could. A great group of charity riders indeed. Links to their website are below.

Ride on brothers and Godspeed!!
