Oklahoma FreeWheel

June 2006

   My son, Chris, and I cycled across Oklahoma from Texas to Kansas – 7 days – 428 miles – avg. speed 12 MPH – top down hill speed 48 MPH - mainly on the back roads through small towns.

We learned:

  That you can coast up hill if you first come off a bigger hill.

  There are asphalt, chip and seal, and pave and grind road surfaces.

  Armadillos by the road side are usually holding a beer bottle and maybe wearing  a small sombrero.
