Tulsa Tough Ride & Race offers Townie Ride event for entire community
Oklahoma recently received an alarming ranking when the findings of a study supported by the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation reported Oklahoma as the 6th most obese state in the nation. The adult obesity rate was 29.5 percent with an obese and overweight children rate also at 29.5 percent.
The Saint Francis Tulsa Tough Ride & Race wants to help Oklahomans fight this ranking and rediscover the joys of an active lifestyle by encouraging Oklahomans to dust off their old bikes and take part in the Tulsa Tough Townie Ride on Sunday, June 6 at 1 p.m.
“The Townie Ride is designed to be a family activity,” said McCollam. “We want kids, parents, couples, friends – everyone to participate in this non-competitive joy ride.”
The eight-mile Townie Ride will start just south of 15th Street and Galveston Avenue on Riverside Drive with a course and purpose designed to cater to all age groups, fitness level and cycling experience. The ride entry fee is $20 for adults, and includes a participant t-shirt. Children aged 12 and under ride free. All participants will receive a finisher’s medal and refreshments at the Zink Park rest stop. Online registration is available at www.tulsatough.com.
Tulsa Tough Ride & Race, created in 2006 by the Tulsa Sports Commission and the Tulsa Wheelmen, is designed for new and experienced riders through competitive races and tour rides showcasing the beautiful city of Tulsa and surrounding communities. Riders, racers and spectators can participate in a number of events and activities from professional-level races, recreation and tour rides, kids and youth activities to live music and vendors during the three-day cycling event.
