In Tandem - November program for TBC general meeting


 What: TBC's November Program
       IN TANDEM: Two men on a journey
       between the temporal
       and the devine
 When: Thursday, November 1, 2018
Where: Hardesty Regional Library,
       east of Memorial on 93rd St S


Tulsan's Tony Gehres, 59, and Bob McCoy, 74, decided to ride bicycles from San Diego, California, to St. Augustine, Florida. "A thin place," Gehres said, "is any place where you can shed all but the final, thin layer between your temporal world and the divine. Cycling is a way to get there— alone in thought, pedaling against that membrane, stretching it thin."

Join Tony Gehres and Bob McCoy on a trip across the southern US accomplished in three stages.

The first leg was self-contained, meaning they had no support driver to carry supplies or scout ahead for meals and accommodations.

The second leg, from El Paso to the Mississippi River crossing, north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, took three weeks and covered 1,080 miles.  They reached the river on March 22, 2017.

the final 850-mile leg of the journey, from the Mississippi River to St. Augustine, Florida, was completed in the spring of 2018.

The info above and more can be found in an article from The Tulsa Voice, July 2017.

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!
