Hope to see you there!
Avery Drive Cleanup
Tuesday, September 11, 2018, 6pm
What's this all about???
For many years the Club has participated in the State of Oklahoma's "Adopt-A-Road" program. As a public service project, groups and organizations "adopt" a length of state or county highway and "clean it up" a couple of times a year.
The Tulsa Bicycle Club has "adopted" a mile-and-a-half section of Avery Drive west of downtown Tulsa, a common route for local cyclists including the infamous "Wednesday Night Ride."
What we do: Collect litter along the Avery Drive right-of-way
When do we do it: Twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall
Where do we meet: In the "green" area circumscribed by the intersections of Avery Drive, Hwy 51 and Hwy 97 near Sand Springs
What's provided: The club provides gloves, pick-up-sticks, trash bags, and beverages & snacks following
How long does it take: We meet at 6pm and are generally done within an hour to an hour and a half
Note: Dress appropriately. Long sleeves and pants are advised as is bright colored clothing.
