Tulsa Bicycle Club

By-Laws      History      Charter Members       Presidents      

The Tulsa Bicycle Club, TBC, was founded in 1972 with the simply stated purpose to "promote all aspects of bicycling."

The Tulsa Bicycle Club sponsors a year round program of rides and events. Our rides vary in length from 5 to 125 miles and in difficulty from very easy social rides to hard and fast tours through and around Oklahoma's green country.  
The Tulsa Bicycle Club will leave no one out.

TBC is and has been involved in helping develop bicycle plans such as the current GO PLAN for Tulsa area communities.  TBC endeavors to educate the public and our membership about bicycle safety.TBC currently sponsors one of many BIKE CLUBs in the Tulsa Public Schools; our club is at Cooper Elementary in east Tulsa.  Learn more about this great program here

Many have the expertise and willingness to share their cycling knowledge regarding safety, ride routes, touring, as well as bicycle equipment selection, maintenance and repair. If you enjoy bicycle riding, come out to one of our rides and see how much fun it is to ride with us.

TBC General Membership Meetings are held at 7:00 pm on the first Thursday of February, March, April, May, September and November at Hardesty Regional Library, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Members and non-members alike are welcome to attend.

Club History





Original club "patch"This is believed to be the first TBC Patch design, probably from about August, 1972.  These patches were printed reversed for use as iron-on patches.

The first meeting of the Tulsa Bicycle Club was held 5 January, 1972 at the Whiteside Recreational Center.  Bob Mercer was acting President pro tem and Eileen Baile acting secretary.  Among those attending and mentioned in the minutes were: Burton Gregg, Ken Driessel, Pat Hubbard, Norman Barrow, Bob Mercer, Eileen Baile, Tom Abbot and Dale Cook.  At the second meeting March 1, 1972, the following officers were elected:





President Norman Barrow
Vice President Bob Mercer
Treasurer Bill Crownover
Secretary Eileen Baile


The first club ride was held on 11 March, 1972 to Jenks, Oklahoma.  

TBC members of record on April 25th, 1972 were charter members (about 25 persons).  By July of 1972 there were over 50 members.  A very active schedule was maintained in 1972.  There were 90 rides, races, meetings and parties held that year.  The annual election and dinner was held December 6, 1972 at the Casa Bonita restaurant.

In 1973 the membership passed 100 and has since never fallen below that number.  There have been many wonderful rides in the years that followed.  Who can forget the great backyard parties, the New Years celebrations and the annual December dinners with the election of officers.  As the miles and the years have rolled away we have acquired friends and memories that will last forever.
