   The Lake City looked a little like Sturgis, South Dakota on Sunday as motorcycle riders descended upon several street corners to promote safety awareness.
   The Grenada Lake Chapter of MAC, or Motorcycle Awareness Campaign, posted riders up and down Highway 8, from Walmart, east, to Highway 333, holding yellow signs to get folks’ attention.
   “Our sole purpose is to bring awareness about the motorcycling community,” said MAC Director Dennis Hancock. “This is the beginning of the riding season, and we’d like folks to be aware that more bikes are on the road this time of year.”
   A beautiful, recreational area, like Grenada Lake, attracts motorcycle riders, Hancock said.
