OK, I double checked and I’m sure I got it right this time. Tour de Trees IS this weekend, Oct 22 & 23. We’ll be camping at Dogwood Campgrounds in Lake Eufaula State Park. There’s a map of the campground location on the page linked below. Weather forecast looks good: Fri night-low 49, wind SSW 6-8 mph. Sat high 77, wind SSW 8 w/gusts up to 13 mph, low 54. Sun high 80, wind SSW 12 w/gusts up to 18. It’ll be a great weekend. Come on out an join the fun.

Sorry, my last post was incorrect. Tour de Trees is NEXT weekend, Oct 22 & 23, NOT this weekend.
Tour de Trees, OBS’s final cycling/camping weekend for this year, is this weekend at Lake Eufaula. The Accuweather forecast for Saturday is for a mix of clouds and sun and a high of 85, winds from the south at 15 mph, overnight low 72. For Sunday, it’s about the same. For those planning to come Friday, there’s a 60% chance of a morning shower, then clearing off with high of 74, winds 6-9 mph from the south and overnight low of 67.
More information and maps area available here.
Just a reminder that Fall Fling is this weekend, Oct 8 & 9, at Okmulgee State Park. More information and maps are available here.
Tour de Trees will be Oct 22 & 23 at Lake Eufaula. More information and maps of that ride are here.
There are two opportunities for cycling/camping weekends in October. The first is Fall Fling, Oct 8 & 9 at Okmulgee State Park. See details here.
Next comes Tour de Trees at Lake Eufaula State Park, Oct 22 & 23. Details for this ride can be found here.
All OBS cycling/camping weekends are free, but each participant is responsible for his/her camping fee and food.
Looking for volunteers to help with registration for this year’s Streak. I need 8 volunteers to help with pre-registration and packet pick up on Saturday September 10. Time slots are from 10am-12pm and 12pm – 2pm. Four volunteers needed for each time slot.
Also need 8 volunteers to help with registration on the morning of the event, Sunday, September 11 from 6am – 7:15am. You can still ride the Streak after volunteering at registration.
Please let me know if you are interested in helping out. Contact Alice at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at 405-990-3185.
OBS ordered a few extra jerseys when we placed our order this spring. You may purchase one of these fully custom jerseys for only $50 (same quality as $80-$90 jerseys in bike shops). If you would like to have the jersey mailed to you, add $4 for that.
Men: Large, X-Large, XX-Large, XXX-Large
Women: Medium, Large, X-Large
These jerseys are cut on European patterns, so they are about a full size smaller than American patterns. If you are not sure of your size, email John Wente at email@example.com and he will send you a sizing chart that will pretty much guarantee you get the right size IF you already have any cycling jersey or t-shirt that fits you well and know how to use a ruler or tape measure 😉
To order send an email to John Wente at firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred) or call 405-354-2301 (leave voice mail if no answer) and he will give you further instructions.
Someone pointed out that the post about the weather for May Getaway did not mention the date. It’s this weekend, May 20-22. Since the weather forecast was the third post about May Getaway, I assumed everyone knew it was this weekend. Bad assumption.
May Getaway is this weekend at Kaw Lake near Ponca City. Here’s the Accuweather.com forecast for the weekend:
Fri – Hi 74, Low 55, partly cloudy, light SE wind (less than 10 mph), chance of t-storm 4-8%
Sat – Hi 78, Low 62, partly cloudy, light SE wind (less than 10 mph), chance of t-storm 21-23%
Sun – Hi 81, Low 63, partly cloudy, SE wind 13-18 mph, chance of t-storm 24%
So, looks like a good weekend for cycling and camping. We have Group Camp #3 at Osage Cove both Friday and Saturday nights. Hope to see you there. Check the details of the ride at http://oklahomabicyclesociety.com/may-getaway-2/
May Getaway will be at Osage Cove camping area at Kaw Lake near Ponca City. Tent campers will stay in group camp #3. There are plenty of RV sites nearby. OBS is picking up the tab for the group camp, so tent campers will not have to pay a fee! 🙂 For more details, map to the campgrounds and maps of the routes, go to this link: http://oklahomabicyclesociety.com/may-getaway-2/
