I posted some information about this awhile back. Here is some more details, courtesy of the state Tourism Department:
Broken Arrow ride set for October 17 and 18; Cycle Fandango registration under way
For those who say the journey is the purpose, Cycle Fandango is a must bicycle adventure. This first-ever Broken Arrow event is accepting registrations now for the ride scheduled for Oct. 17 and 18.
But unlike some rides where getting there is the goal, this ride embraces the trip…complete with beautiful scenery and a chance to cool off in a bubbling brook… search out mom and pop diners… and take time to enjoy local favorites…. and the stories of old timers.
“The two-day bicycle event is packed with adventure, culture, food and drink and plenty of old-fashioned fun”, said Tammy Fate of the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce.
Cycle Fandango will start the evening of Oct. 16 at the Stonewood Hills area in Broken Arrow with bands at Los Cabos and the Cigar Box. Plus, there’ll be kayaking at Bass Pro and shopping at the Villages at Stonewood Hills.
Starting Saturday morning, Oct. 17, the ride will head out from the Holiday Inn Express Hotel near Bass Pro in Broken Arrow through the northeastern Oklahoma Arkansas River Valley Region and into the beautiful foothills of the Ozark Mountains to Greenleaf State Park.
On Saturday evening riders will enjoy chuck wagon food on a starry hilltop camp, overlooking Greenleaf Lake. A rock band will perform. Riders can also enjoy other Greenleaf activities such miniature golf, sand volleyball, canoeing and hiking on an 18-mile nature trail.
On Sunday after breakfast, the group takes off on a different route filled with other amazing adventures. Ride distances are approximately 65-70 miles each day, according to the Web site.
Pre-registration is ongoing until Sept. 25 at $60 per person. After Sept. 25, the cost per person is $65.
