Thursday Theme Day - Bicycle: Oklahoma Freewheel

Oklahoma Freewheel: For the past 32 years a thousand of more happy bikers spend the second week of June riding 400 miles in six days from Texas across the state of Oklahoma to Kansas.    All brag, no sag!

If you check the photo archive for Freewheel 1993 you will find an old friend.

Four centuries at once. Quite the ride.
In my younger days not now - one century is plenty

Ah, the famous "Tour de Oklahoma" :-)

(I have just realized it took me three attempts to spell the name of your state correctly. Gee.)

Actually I took this photo in 2001 when I did my last Freewheel. I rode a lot of these but this last one was to manage a rest stop. Yes, the link is me with my faithful assistant Tootsie. And yes Rosie, those were the days.

I'm afraid I don't know the identity of the father and son pair but they were having a great week. At the end they will be tired and maybe a little sore, but with a sense of accomplishment and lots of shared memories.

That's a father-son pair? For a minute I thought it was Bobby and Jo Carol.
