This weekend, get ready for a huge cycling event called "Tulsa Tough!"  Professional and amateur cyclists from around the country will descend upon Tulsa for 3 days of Criterium racing.  Criterium racing takes place on city streets, with about a hundred riders looping around and around the course...the better for spectators to see the race.

Events will be staged from the Blue Dome, Brady, and Riverside Drive areas.  Races will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday (June 2-4).  Rides for the rest of us include 100 mile, 75 KM, and 50 KM events which will take place on Saturday and Sunday (June 3 & 4).

For more information: www.tulsatough.com

If you'd like to help support this event (which is already on next year's pro cycling calendar), go to the website and click on "volunteer."  (I know they still need volunteers to man rest-stops, and "sag wagon" drivers for the 100 mile rides.  

Otherwise, just show up and enjoy the events!(Did I mention live music and kids stuff, too?)

It's great when a bunch of people from out of town come here to ride bikes,  spend money like water, and then leave.

Christmas in June!

Unfortunately, I will miss the revelers on Crybaby Hill as I will be doing a volunteer gig on Sunday this year.  Might do my liver some good to skip it this year anyhow.

I'll post photos on Google+, Conan, though given the weather reports and the fact that Sunday is our anniversary, I won't spend much time there. She-Who-etc would be thoroughly displeased if I didn't take her out. I only LOOK dumb.

My better half and I have gone to the Criterium races in the Brady and Blue Dome districts the last few years but this will be the first that we'll do Cry Baby Hill.  I assume the earlier we get there, the better...and I understand there are no beer vendors at that criterium?  We plan on staying hydrated, mind the gap and take Monday off...but I'll be darned it I wear a diaper... Cool

We'd  appreciate any suggestions (or warnings)...

Actually, I believe Prairie Artesian Ales will have beer up on CBH, just not certain where.  They brewed a Crybaby Hill Pilsner specifically for the event.  I’m assuming they will have some to pour Sunday.  I know we have it available in the VIP areas for TT.

A "craft" pilsner?  Why?

Is it a lot like making love in a canoe?

The race hits the hill about every 5 minutes. They're moving fast, so mind the gap, mind the gendarmes, and PAY ATTENTION! It's not a place for kids, strollers, dogs, or glass bottles.

I agree! Pilsners come from Czech Republic. They have some of the best Pilsners on earth. They are amazing and cheap there. Glad both Marshall and Prairie have made their own versions. It's a great beer for meaty-dinners to go with German brats or roasted pork.

In the US, mainstream water beer has given Pilsner a bad name because, to answer swake's question, it's %$@#%$ close to water!
