Hey, guys! I have a scathingly brilliant idea for a ride this weekend.

The American Solar Challenge cars will be driving through OK this Sunday afternoon -- they leave McAlester around 12:30, and head north on 69. I'm thinking about leaving Tulsa Scooters around the same time, following 266/66 to Claremore, then 20 into Pryor. We can have a late lunch at Goldie's or Chili's in Pryor (they are both located right on 69) and watch the solar cars drive by, then head back home. It's a 45 mile ride one-way, and will probably take about 1 1/2 hours each way.

(sailortot -- you guys could hook up as we cross 169, rather than drive down into Tulsa)

According to Travis Meyer, it's supposed to be low 90s, with 10% chance of rain.

Send me a message if you are interested.

Sunday afternoon is tight for me but I may make it! It sounds like a lot of fun--I was on Highway 20 last weekend and it is pretty nice to ride on. 45 miles = 1 1/2 hours? I think NOT! Wink

I'll be at the Thursday night ride tonight so I'll talk to you there if you show!

mapquest.com estimates 1 hr 5 min, but I was figuring in photo stops! Very Happy

And what's with the "if you show" ??? Where were you the last two weeks?? I've got my brand new, cherry red, froggtoggs, and I'm not afraid to use 'em! Razz

Sounds interesting. I might be up for it if the weather permits.

Will give me a chance to use (and not be able to see) my GPS Very Happy

Due to tragic circumstances, this event will be a non-starter.

See my post in the General Discussion Forum. Crying or Very sad

I'm leaving for Myrtle Beach, SC, on Saturday in the Cruiser with my wife and grandchildren. It sounded like a wonderful ride idea, though.

And, again, I'm sorry ol' Blue bit the big one, literally.
