Hosted by Saint Francis Tulsa Tough
The guys and gals over at Tulsa Tough are up to some good, they are putting a weekend of events together that will make the whole family happy! They don’t have a name for it yet so for now just call it Beta Tough.
Some people might not remember, but Saint Francis Tulsa Tough was born after a group of local cyclists volunteered at grassroots events over several decades and gained the know-how to create our now-beloved event.
Beta Tough will harken back to the days when we came together with a group of volunteers pitched-in and created something from nothing.

Join us Saturday, September 8th as we head over to Pryor to ride DAM JAM!!!!!
DAM J.A.M. is Oklahoma's most scenic one-day bicycle tour. A fabulous fall family event, featuring fun rides of 30, 55, 71, or 101 miles!
Keep in mind, distances may vary according to tweaks we always have to make each year. That's why we call them "1/4 DAM J.A.M.", "1/2 DAM J.A.M.", "3/4 DAM J.A.M.", and "Whole DAM J.A.M." So please don't get too hung up on the numbers - just ride and look around.
Located in the heart of Oklahoma's Green Country in beautiful Mayes and Delaware Counties. The tour starts and finishes in Pryor, Oklahoma within riding distance of more than 2,500 miles of lake shoreline in the gentle foothills of the Ozark Mountains.
You'll experience lush countryside, well-paved, shady rural roads, DAM J.A.M.'s world-famous festive rest stops, and some of the best support of any bicycle ride...anywhere.
¼ DAM J.A.M. If you want a great taste of bicycle touring but don't think you're ready for the longer rides, this is the one. It travels about 32 miles over scenic rural roads around Pryor with a trip down Waterline Road where you'll get a nice view of Lake Hudson. A great way to spend the morning.
½ DAM J.A.M. This is an excellent and challenging tour around Lake Hudson, Chimney Rock Lake, and the rural areas near Salina and Pryor. It goes about 60 miles on smooth roads with plenty of rolling hills and enjoys at least four of our famous rest stops.
¾ DAM J.A.M. Pick this one if you don't want a century but you have the legs for 4-6 hours of excellent bicycle riding. It covers about 76 miles of smooth, challenging hills around Lakes Hudson, Spavinaw, and Chimney Rock. You'll love Waterline Road, Indian Springs Road and the old Strang Bridge. A DAM near perfect tour.
The Whole DAM J.A.M. For a full day of great fall cycling, you gotta do this 110-mile century. If you like hills and smooth winding roads, this is as good as it gets. Covers all the features and lakes of the other routes, plus the mile-long historic Pensacola Dam and parts of Delaware County where you'll have views of beautiful Grand Lake O' the Cherokees and Lake Eucha before you head back on the smooth and rolling Kenwood Road. Just in reach of the first-time century rider who has been diligent in training. Will challenge the most experienced.
