Awesome rugged critter, fairydandy. It is amazing how much freedom 2 wheelers can give us and what they teach us about ourselves, our environment, and our Mother Earth and all her creatures. 8-)

Can't wait to get Elessar's reports on his fantastic feat!

Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

Love the scenery there!


That's Tulsa Riverparks and Riverwalk, walk and bike trails. There are over 500 acres just inside the park, alone. In no way can those photos capture what it was like, there. There are over 100 miles of trails going deep through the woods, across three bridges including the walk bridge (the wooden one with the overhead enclosure) and a lot on the opposite side of the Arkansas River as well. If one crosses the river, such as on the walk bridge, then you ride on the other side as far as you want, then cross back over on another bridge. Mainly flat land there but grueling when the temps are 95 degrees, Fahrenheit and humidity at 80% or higher. Tulsa is hot! lol

Fair rendition of crossing the walk bridge only we usually didn't let anyone know we were coming. lol. As soon as I hit that bridge, it was full steam ahead and everyone outta the way! ROTFLOL! :-D

Not my video, just to be clear.

Someday we will evolve to a higher thinking than people, cyclists, dogs, and small children together in small dynamic spaces. I like riding in protected bike lanes or at least on the side of the road. Multiuse trails can be crazy!

Yea they were crazy trails, sometimes, especially when the runners were out in force. They thought they owned the trails and would be running 6 or 7 abreast, taking up the entire lane so you had to run off into the grass to pass them. they were pompous asses. :lol:

I liked riding, here, too. in Tulsa, that is. I rode a lot in Illinois, including in snow. My poor ex would never ride in cold weather but I did. My approach to my house was a steep terrace and I'd always jump the curb and go straight up the terrace. Once I overshot and headed right into a 100ft tall fir tree. :lol: :lol: :lol: The neighbors must have had a good laugh. I sure did. lolol. I just got right back up and went up the stairs with the bike. :-D I was a daredevil rider for sure. One time... nevermind. :lol: :P

I hasn't originally planned on publicising it here for a number of reasons, but now that it's out it seems silly not to try to milk it! So to that end, if anyone would be so generous as to sponsor me (the charity is to improve access to education for poor children in India) then please PM me.

It's Paris to Nice, by the way.

The main reason is that it annoys me when people show off about what a great fucking person they are by doing charity work, +/- dressed up as a fucking Womble. You showed off for me though, so it's fine :P
