Q: What makes Oklahoma Freewheel unique?

A: It is the only cross-state bicycle tour in the state of Oklahoma, and one of the longest running tours out there - 2014 will be the 36th year! The host communities also contribute to the unique quality of OKFW by showcasing all the off-the-beaten path highlights that Oklahoma has to offer.


Q: What about the 2014 route is special?

A: This year OKFW is going through the Chickasaw nation, so be prepared to see a lot of cool historical sites.  Tishomingo (June 9 overnight) is the capital of the Chickasaw nation. OKFW will also be in catfish and noodling (hand fishing) country and we hope to showcase this as well.


Q: What makes Freewheel enjoyable?

A: Freewheel has a really interesting route, excellent SAG support and route marking, and most importantly the intimate atmosphere and friendships that form during the course of the ride.  Participants get personal care, attention, and support-more than 75% of those who are Freewheel first-timers come back for repeat rides.


Q: What is great about the towns OKFW will feature this year?

A: Pauls Valley is home to the "Okie Noodling Festival" and there will be catfish and (hopefully) noodling (aka hand fishing) demonstrations. McLoud has never hosted us before.  They put on a huge blackberry festival every year and will treat us to that experience. Stillwater is the location of Speedwheel, the criterium races that take place during the week of Freewheel.  It is also the location of Oklahoma State University and the OSU cycling club has been instrumental in hosting us.


Q: What's new to Freewheel this year?

A: This year there will be portajohns at all of our official fruit stops.  We have a new shower truck from Pork Belly Ventures that will be air conditioned and cleaned on the hour.  Additionally, one of our corporate sponsors, Superior Linen, is donating towels for use each day during showers.  Finally, we will have a cell phone and electronic device charging station (provided by Pork Belly Ventures) that will hold up to 800 devices.  Charging will be free to all participants, and if you want to securely stow your device while it charges you need to bring your own small padlock. 


Q: What sets Freewheel apart? What do people love about it?

A: The service and personal care you get for the price you pay is the best out there.  Our fun, intimate atmosphere makes anyone and everyone welcome. Riders love the adventure, the friendships, the host communities, everything!
