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 ???


Tour de Tulsa Registration is OPEN!



Registrater NOW for the 31st edition of the Tour de Tulsa!
Online registration closes Wednesday night, May 2nd ...

NOTE:  T-shirt deadline has passed!

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!

And if you want to ride one of the other distances, it's only $35 through midnight Wednesday, May 2!  Save $10 bucks over ride-day registration by registering right now?


Read all about it ...   or just go straight to registration!

Healthy Cycling
Beginner’s Guide - 5 Things You Need to Know


Derrick Lopez, an Oklahoma cyclist and college student, was challenged by his Health Class instructor to raise safety awareness for a sport he's passionate about as part of a class project.  Derrick reached out to cycling groups in Oklahoma to share the article we've linked to below.

This article, Healthy Cycling | Beginner's Guide - 5 Things You Need to Know, is worth a look from any cyclist; whether a beginner or not.

Thanks, Derrick, for sharing your passion for cycling with us here in Tulsa!

Be careful out there on the road!

So, you say, who's captaining the ship in 2018?  If you missed the Holiday Gathering where the 2018 officers were announced, you may not have gotten the word.  Our apologies for not having communicated this information sooner.

Shown above are the names and faces of the Tulsa Bicycle Club executive committee for 2018.

Our thanks to last year's officers; Bob Restor, Tammy Duckworth, Ross Snider and Larry Thompson.  They piloted us through 2017.  Ross Snider stepped down after more than a decade as secretary and Larry Thompson is finally getting a break after stepping in when long-time TBC treasurer John Ross bowed out several years ago.  Give them your thanks for their service the next time you see them at a ride or Club gathering.

2018 is the first year in recent memory that the officer group is entirely new with no returning members!  So cut us some slack as we endeavor to step up and carry the torch. 

Don't be shy about stepping in and lending a hand, offering suggestions and taking part.  We will be calling on you!
