This is a rolling route that starts and finishes near Boomer Lake in Stillwater, OK. A 209km slice of Americana, the route goes through several small towns northeast of Stillwater. Some still have brick paved side streets. You’ll cross the Arkansas River on an interesting (and poorly paved) old bridge. With a town every 20-30 miles, services aren’t scarce. There are several opportunities for BBQ, hamburgers and fried chicken if that’s you’re thing. If not, you’ll find the usual convenience store fare.
The route is reversible, so you can choose whether to ride the loop from Pawnee in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction.
