OBS May Getaway 2016
Kaw Lake (near Ponca City, OK)
The May Getaway OBS cycling/camping weekend floats from one location to another from year to year. This year, it will be held at Kaw Lake near Ponca City, OK. The tour takes us through the far western part of Osage County, which is the largest county in Oklahoma, and parts of the town of Ponca City. The terrain ranges from rolling hills to almost flat for the stretch along the Arkansas River. The Saturday route is a relatively short 42 miles to allow participants time to visit the Marland Mansion, Marland Grand Home and Pioneer Woman Museum if they so desire. The ride will depart the campground at 9:00 AM Saturday morning.
Camping will be at Osage Cove Camp Ground. We will try to reserve one of the group camp areas, but if none is available we will still be in the Osage Cove camping area. Click here for a map to the campsite.
Saturday evening will, as always, feature the World Famous OBS Pot Luck Dinner. Remember to bring something to share with the group and don’t forget your plate, bowel, knife, fork, spoon and something to serve the dish you bring.
Sunday’s ride will be into Ponca City for breakfast and back out to the lake. The departure time will be 8:30 unless announced otherwise at the Pot Luck Saturday evening. The distance is about 26 miles with an option for 6 additional miles for mileage junkies.
Route maps will be added here when confirmed.
