Congrats to Cheyenne Woods and Glen Woods (daughter/father) triathletes from Mayes County for the participation in the Claremore Tri last weekend.  Glen reports that Cheyenne finished 4th even though she was bumped up and competed with 18 and 19 year olds.  Glen finished 16th in his age division.  A good showing for our local folks.

A reminder about the Flower Power ride in Muskogee this Saturday.  I’m planning on going.  Call me at 825-4555 if you want a ride.  The ride begins and ends at Honor Heights park.  Should be really pretty there as all the azaleas are blooming….along with other things!

Local ride is 1:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon.  We’ll meet at Whitaker Park’s southwest corner.  Come join us….we did 20 miles last weekend…and although we tried to stay out of that south breeze (25 mph) we hit it a few times…good training for summertime Oklahoma riding!

 

And the bicycle quote for the week…..

It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.  Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.  ~Ernest Hemingway
