I'd start out heading west, probably through Chickasha to Anadarko. You could then go W to Mtn View, Gotebo, and maybe to Quartz Mtn. Start back E to the Wichita Mtns Wildlife area, make sure you go through it and stop at Medicine Park or Meers. I would then head in the gen'l direction of Duncan and make sure you go through the Arbuckles toward Sulphur and Davis. Get some tamales from that shack in Davis and visit the springs there in the monument at Sulphur. I would then push on toward Tishomingo and Durant. Next off toward Antlers, then up to Nashoba and over to Honobia. From Honobia I would go to Talihina and then over the first half of the scenic drive to Highway 259 and then go N to Heavener. You could also go from Honobia to Ocatvia then North on 259 and go back W to Talihina then N to Wister, or go E on #1 to Mena Ark and back to Wister. Hiway 1 is one hilly mother. Grades over 10% and lots of them. It's very steep so you need to have the proper gears. it IS well worth doing however. You need plenty of liquids, there are few places to get any in that area, and it will be humid and hot.
From Wister just find some scenic routes to get up to Tenkiller. Go N on the E side of Tenkiller to Tahlequa. Lastly I would head in the gen'l direction of Bartlesville across the Tallgrass to Ponca City and then back down to Norman. Actually, I probably wouldn't go as far as Ponca, maybe turn S to Pawnee, Cushing and back to Norman. The last place on my list would be NW Okla. If you had time it would be swell, but this itinerary lets you get warmed up for the hills. It really depends on how many miles per day you can handle. PM me for some specifics.
