If somehow you haven’t heard, tonight some of the top cyclists in the world will descend on downtown Tulsa as part of the annual Saint Francis Tulsa Tough Ride and Race, an event that’s become a signature Tulsa weekend that packs world-class bicycle races, rides, and a festival into a mere three days.
With that much going on as part of a single event, you’re going to need a guide. Be sure to pick one up in the latest issue of This Land, which is readily available downtown, and especially so over the course of this weekend. If I didn’t work in the office where these papers get delivered, I’d stop by Dwelling Spaces—that way you can get the Guide to Tulsa Tough and any Tulsa Tough merch you need to stock up on.
Parents and families: Did you know that you can be part of the Tulsa Tough goings-on this weekend? It’s true. There’s still time to sign up for the Tulsa Townie. My family and I are going to give it a shot—come on down and join us. It’s free to register.
And if you don’t make it out to Tulsa Tough or to pick up the official guide, you can still read up about cycling and the event here:
- Hell on Wheels, a take on the perils of commuter cycling in Oklahoma, by Beau Adams
- When the going gets tough, a history of the Tulsa Tough event, by yours truly
- Original Okie (you gotta pick up the latest edition of TL to get this one), the latest work by Tulsa photographer Jeremy Charles who captures an image of Chad Cagle, a family man and one of the top Cat 1 racers in the country.
