DURANT, OK -- Around 90 bikers took part in the 17th annual Magnolia Bike tour Saturday.

The Durant race offered three different length courses 20, 35 and 55 miles.

This year, racers started from Lake Durant.

Organizer Ron Erickson says the proceeds benefit the Rotary Club, which will go to the charities they support.

"We should raise between $4,000 - $5,000 to go to one of those charities," he said.

Erickson said this year's change of venue was a hit. He says it'll likely be a permanent home.
