Tour de Tulsa has been cancelled for 2020

... but you can Ride your own Tour de Tulsa, and we encourage you to do so!  As you might have anticipated considering CDC guidance for cancelation of gatherings of 10 or more, the Tulsa Bicycle Club and Pathways to Health have made the difficult decision to cancel the Tour de Tulsa for 2020.

That said, we encourage you to mark your calendar for May 1, 2021 for the next Tour de Tulsa and we encourage you to Ride your own Tour de Tulsa this year!  Grab a map from the Tour de Tulsa web page or select a route of your own and get out in the fresh air and ride.  Won't be quite the same as having the Tour de Tulsa's great rest stops and support, but you'll feel better for having gotten out and gotten the exercise.

And don't forget that our co-host, Pathways to Health, continues to promote health and wellness in the Tulsa community.  Our presenting sponsor, Ascension | St John, has agreed to honor their $10,000 donation to Pathways to Health in 2020.  Consider following their lead and making a direct donation to Pathways to Health so that they can continue their work in 2020.

Make a donation now to Pathways to Health:  Donate now to Pathways to Health 

Thanks also to our great community supporters without whom the ride could not occur.  Our local bike shop supporters include Tom's BicyclesT-Town Bicycles, and Spoke House Bicycles and our communications and sag support is provided by the Tulsa Amateur Radio Club.  Many of our local bike shops remain open during the coronavirus outbreak, so don't forget to patronize them for maintenance and supplies during these uncertain times.  The Tulsa Amateur Radio Club is a long-time Tour de Tulsa partner and they support a number of other Tulsa area bicycling events as well.

So, pick a route from the Tour de Tulsa website or design a route of your own and Ride your own Tour de Tulsa.  Tell us about your ride on our facebook page.  And be well!

33rd Annual Tour de Tulsa
presented by St. John Health System | Ascension
Saturday, May 1st, 2021
  

Tour de Tulsa has been a spring cycling ritual for Tulsa-area cyclists for more than 30 years.  The charity bike ride is hosted by the Tulsa Bicycle Club and the Tulsa Health Department.

 
Participating cyclists have the opportunity to meet other cyclists, get some miles under their belt and maybe ride their first century of the season.  Tour de Tulsa offers routes ranging from 20 to 100 miles, as well as a family fun ride of about 8 miles; mileages may vary slightly due to any last minute route changes that may be required from year to year.  Route maps, cue sheets and digital files will, however, reflect the actual route on ride day.
 
Proceeds from the Tour de Tulsa benefit Pathways to Health, which unites over 90 local agencies, organizations, corporations and health systems to improve health outcomes in Tulsa County.
  
Join us for Tulsa's premier spring community ride featuring good food, great rest stops, and friendly riders all along the way.  We'll see you there!

Benefitting the Health of Our Community!



Proceeds from the Tour de Tulsa benefit Pathways to Health, which unites over 90 local agencies, organizations, corporations and health systems to improve health outcomes in Tulsa County.
 
Pathways to Health was formed in 2008 in response to a challenge to decrease the overlap of health services and identify gaps where health leaders are missing vulnerable populations.  The goal of Pathways to Health is to connect community health resources to those who need it most.  Pathways to Health brings together local community health stakeholders to share ideas, increase synergies, and complement each other's strengths.  We believe through partnership anything is possible.
