Ride Navigation: getting there and back again!
May TBC Program - way finding!?
When: Thursday, May 3, 7pm
Where: Hardesty Library, Maple Room
How the heck do I get there?
What's a Cue Sheet?
Isn't there an "app" for that?
Come to our May 3rd meeting and we'll answer and other navigation questions (and probably leave you with many more!?).
We'll introduce you to the Club's "Ride with GPS Club Page" where our ride maps are located. And then we'll show you the associated "app" for your smartphone that will enable you to download the maps and get turn-by-turn navigation directions.
If time permits, we'll introduce you to some other tech tools you may find worthwhile as you pedal out of your driveway! If nothing else, we've got an app you can use so your spouse can find you when you're lost, tuckered out, or lying in the ditch!
Bring your smartphone and feel free to share your own favorite bicycle navigation tool suggestions with the group.
That's Thursday evening, May 3rd at the Hardesty Regional Library just east of Memorial on 93rd Street South; we'll be in the Maple Room.
See you there ... if you can find your way ???

Why Not Bring The Whole Family?!
Why not get mom and the kids out for the Tour de Tulsa's Family Fun Ride? Let the spandex hammerheads go do their hundred miles while your family enjoys a leisurely ride along the west bank of the Arkansas River. Just 8 miles of bike path with snacks and porta-johns at the mid-way point; all the kids can do it! The kids will love seeing everything along the way; groups of white pelicans, an occasional bald eagle, fisherman at the low-water dam, Canada geese on the PSO cooling pond ... what an adventure.
Be sure to sign up by midnight April 18th so everyone will have a matching t-shirt commemorating a day of fun on two wheels with the family! At ten bucks each, it's a steal!
