In a comment to the last post, Glen invites us to watch a spectator friendly triathalon this weekend in Claremore.  Make sure you take a look at this comment post.  I am very lucky that entry for the event was full on Wednesday, as I almost got entered by Bob in this event.  That would have been interesting, to say the least!


Two chances to ride in organized bicycle rides in the next two weeks.  This Saturday, April 19 is the Tour de Tick in Neosho…just about an hour and fifteen away.  There’s the Deer Tick Tour which is 26.5 miles, the Wood Tick Tour 62 miles and the Dog Tick Tour…100 miles.  Start finish is near Crowder College.  If you want more info…see the previous posts to find the entry form and directions to the start line.

Saturday, April 26 is Flower Power at Honor Heights Park in Muskogee.  Should be a great day.   There’s also more info on this ride in a previous post.

PLUS……If you are interested in a fellowship Sunday ride…we’re meeting at 2:00 p.m. this Sunday, April 20 at southwest corner of Whitaker Park for at least 20 miles of Pryor environs.  Come join us….forecast is for 77 degrees! Celebrate Spring with us on Sunday.

And finally….as cyclists, we are all concerned about our health and well being.  As osteoporosis is a genetic problem in my family, I have done some “internet” research to find that cross-training is very important to keep my bones strong.  So I thought I’d share this article from Bicycling Magazine.  It has appeared in several blogs and has some very important and timely advice. 

This article on osteoporosis and cycling was written in 2004 by Roy M. Wallack and appeared in Bicycling Magazine.

Happy Cycling…and hope to see you Sunday at 2:00 at Whitaker Park.
