Grand Adventure Roadtrip – Day 4

Art along the River Banks Trail in Tulsa Oklahoma

Tulsa, Oklahoma – a bike trail paradise for cyclists.

The adventure – road trip from the East Coast to the Grand Canyon and back.

The goals:

  • Bicycle in every state we drive through.
  • Visit as many national parks as we can.
  • Celebrate the wins… a roadtrip isn’t a roadtrip without some ‘misses’.

Today’s lesson

Be grateful when the camping spot you thought you wanted is no longer available.

Keystone State Park (west of Tulsa) was a peaceful alternative with good star-gazing.

Today’s win

Biking the River Parks’ Bank Trails (east and west) in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
It’s a destination greenway and an amazing transit system. 

Over 17 miles long and connecting into other regional trails, it‘ll show you Tulsa at its finest.
