    Tulsa Tough

    Anyone doing the http://www.tulsatough.com, most of the guys I ride with are going. They said last year was excellent and expect this year to be better.

    I'll probably be there all three nights to watch the criteriums. They were a lot of fun last year.

    I'm also thinking about the Saturday 100km ride as that's probably all that my legs can handle. I did the Sunday ride last year and it was pretty good but the Saturday ride goes north of town where there's more open country and hills and scenery.

    I think we are doing the 100 mile on Sunday. There are about 10 of us coming from Enid.

    If you have the time, you should stick around for the Riverside criterium located where the Sunday ride starts and stops. There are some pretty steep grades and one hairpin that made for a great race last year.

    You might want to ask the ride organizers how they're going to handle the support for the century route. I heard of a few people being turned away at the first stop after the turnoff from the 100km route. I don't know how many hours into the ride this was, though.

    There is about ten of us going. I think we should be between 4-4.5 hrs. I hope that gets us back in time to watch some of the other races.

    I am going to do the 100k on Sunday. I have some chronic knee pain that has just reappeared, so I am not going to push it. I already registered but did not get a bib number. I will be on an orange Tarmac, say hi if you see me. We plan to get there early Saturday afternoon.

    I am doing the century sat. and sun. I did the century on sat last year and 40 miles on sun. Since I live here I have since ridden the sunday route and think it is alot harder route with more hills. I came in about last on the century last year and I wasn't turned away anywhere. It's a good ride.

    Teel Rd Hill is tough no doubt, the Hill west of Kiefer is pretty steep too.

    Well I did both days.....it was really good weather both ride days. Next year I hope to challange the sub 5 hour mark on them. I pushed more on the first day and so the second day my legs were pretty tired..All in all a great ride...great races....very entertaining...

    I have to agree Biff, it was a great time. The weather was perfect, I was only able to do the Sunday ride though. Some of those hills were killer, I don't know what streets they were but motionbased showed one 19% and one 17%. I hope I can rehab my knee and do back to back centuries next year.
