Von Franken Ride/Run/Ride

The Tulsa cycling advocacy group and the Tulsa Community Cycling Project are having a ride in conjunction with the Von Franken family fun run that benefits the Salvation Army food drive. The run begins at 9AM Thanksgiving morning at 31st and Riverside in Tulsa. The ride begins from McClure Park at 8AM.

Everyone is urged to bring canned goods to donate to the food drive. We can help to haul goods too, if needed. Anyone who wishes to do a ride/run/ride can leave their bicycle with the advocacy group for security. That means the big guy - me - will keep an eye on it!

Of course, any donations to the Community Cycling Project are welcome. We have been working with several social agencies, providing bicycles, accessories, and Road1 instruction to various clients. Most of the material has been donated by shops and individuals. For the first time, we will be getting matching funds from INCOG next year, so any cash we can raise is most welcome as it will provide considerable leverage.
