Spring Training Rides

Join us on our 2018 Spring Training Rides.

See info for all rides, starting locations, and a PDF of the schedule to post on the fridge on our Spring Training Rides page.

Rides are mapped and marked on the roadway surface.  Printed maps will be available at the rides, you can download the map PDF, use the Ride With GPS app to navigate the routes, or download GPX files to your Garmin or similar device.

Ride distances increase weekly until you're riding 30 and 40 miles at a clip!  You'll be ready for the Tour de Tulsa by May 5th and the Copland Classic two weeks later.

Hose off your bike and become part of our peloton.  We'd love to see you, your family, your friends and neighbors.

All are welcome.  You need not be a Club member to join us!
So, come on; ride with us!

April General Meeting - What's a barrel adjuster?

What:  April TBC Meeting
When:  Thursday, April 5, 7pm
Where:  Hardesty Regional Library
             Fossard Auditorium

Program:  Simple at-home maintenance and on-the-road repairs you can do yourself; REALLY, you can!

You can do this!  Whether it's fixing a flat or adjusting your rear derailleur, any cyclist can do the "simple stuff" to keep their bike humming.  Whether in your garage or on the road, there are a handful of simple adjustments and repairs YOU CAN DO YOURSELF! 

That's what our April Club program is all about.  It will be hands on and we'll expect you to step up and turn the screwdriver, fix the flat, adjust the derailleur.  We'll be right there to show you how.

Here's what we'll be sharing:

  • Fix a flat
  • Adjust your brakes
  • Change your brake pads
  • Straighten your handlebars
  • Adjust your seat
  • Adjust your front and rear derailleur

Want more?  Just ask and we'll share our expertise or find someone who can.

Feel free to bring your own bike or just bring the front wheel if lugging the bike is too much trouble.  We'll have bikes you can practice all of this on, but if you want to see it done on your own bike, bring it along.  We're in the auditorium at the library, so should have plenty of room!

Here's hoping we see you there!

New Cycling "How To's" page available!

Check out our new Cycling "How To's" page with links to great information on learning how to ride safely and repair and maintain your bicycle.

Lot's of good info here from the League of American Bicyclists, CyclingSavvy, Park Tool, Global Cycling Network, and more.  We'll continue to add information and links to this area to provide Green Country cyclists with access to great cycling tools on the internet.  Check it often.

Pending House Bill would increase safe passing distance

HB2191 Proposes Passing Distance Increase

A bill currently in committee at the state capitol would make the following changes to current state law with respect to motor vehicles passing bicyclists:

  • Increase the safe passing separation distance from three feet to five feet.
  • Require motorists to completely change lanes to pass bicyclists when traveling on multi-lane roads (two or more lanes in each direction).
  • Increases fine for colliding with or causing a bicyclist to crash from $500 to $1000.
  • Increases fine for collisions resulting in the death of a bicyclist from $1,000 to $10,000.

Track the status of the bill here. You can view and download the full text of the bill on this page as well.

Contact your Representative tovoice your opinion.  Find contact information for your state representative here (scroll down on the page displayed to find info for all representatives).

Why not let your Senator know how you feel at the same time?  Find your senator and their contact info here.

Meet your 2018 TBC Officers
Meet your 2018 TBC Officers

Mike Schooling
Vice President 
Wayne Mark
Diane Lau
Dale Schrimshaw


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!

Go to the Contact Us page if you need to reach any of us to share your thoughts!
