Tulsa Area MS150

The annual MS150 bicycle tour went from Tulsa to Pryor and back this weekend as the remains of Hurricane Ike rolled through eastern Oklahoma. Saturday was hot and humid, with occasional bands of rain that increased throughout the day. The Tulsa World reported that the 400 soaked riders faced slippery roads approaching Pryor.

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system. Fund raisers like the one in eastern Oklahoma are held nationwide. Contact the National MS Society for more information.

As I write this Sunday morning, temperatures have dropped into the 60s with a strong north wind. That means the riders will face a mostly cross-wind ride back to Tulsa. It's a welcome change from yesterday's oppressive humidity.
