OK Freewheel 2016 as Told by Social Media

Call us gluttons for punishment, but there’s just something about cycling with your friends and coworkers across the state in the oppressive heat that really creates some lasting memories.

You may have heard, but only a week-and-a-half ago, Team InterWorks completed their second consecutive OK Freewheel bike tour. The tour always occurs in the dead of summer and takes riders from one end of the state to the other. This year’s route took us across several Native American nations, starting in Madill at the Southern Oklahoma border and ending in the border town of Caney, Kansas.

The event itself was absolutely incredible, and InterWorks completely supported those who chose take on the challenge, including covering the entrance fee and even giving us a PTO match for the week!

While I could recount the experience through words alone, I thought it might be more interesting to share some of the best moments shared on Twitter and Instagram by Team InterWorks. So, let’s relive the journey real quick together!

Day 4 – Okmulgee to Sand Springs

 

 

#okfreewheel – Day 4 — Okmulgee to Sand Springs — The downhills we enjoyed yesterday were the uphills we had to climb today. After retracing yesterday’s route in reverse for a little bit, we hit some gradual downhills that allowed us to fly for a good portion of the ride. Came into familiar territory after hitting Kiefer, then went up through Sapulpa to our final destination in Sand Springs, where the mighty Arkansas doth flow. There was one decently tough climb, but today’s route, which was also the shortest yet, ended up being pretty easy with most of #TeamIW rolling in from 10 to 11. Since camp is only 15 min from home, I’m gonna enjoy a night in my own bed. Getting back on the road bright and early tomorrow! #cycling

What a trip! Again, I can’t stress enough how lucky we are to be able to participate in stuff like this year to year. Thanks again, InterWorks! Can’t wait until the next adventure.
