SW Oklahoma Tour to Nowhere
Welcome to the the Southwest Oklahoma Tour to Nowhere! Mark your calendar for April 21-23, 2023 for a weekend adventure that spans from Elk City, OK to Fort Cobb State Park, past Nowhere, Oklahoma, and ending in Chickasha. The ride is approximately 50% gravel, with 70 miles on Saturday, camping at Fort Cobb State Park Saturday night, and 45 miles to Chickasha Sunday morning.
Jeff Jarel, owner of Garage Bicycle Works of Elk City and Cody White, owner of Legendary Bicycles of Chickasha have teamed up to deliver an awesome tour of Southwest Oklahoma. In 2022 Jeff and Cody tested the Ride to Nowhere with groups from Chickasha and Elk City. 2023 will mark the second annual Tour to Nowhere (TtN).
The Tour to Nowhere is a self-supported ride (no rest stops, though we will have limited sag vehicles on the route). We will transport your bike, camping gear (limit 2 bags, 50 lbs each), and provide three meals (breakfast Saturday, Dinner Saturday, and Breakfast Sunday). You will be on your own for dinner Friday and lunch Saturday. We will offer a shuttle from Chickasha to Elk City on Friday afternoon for those who want to leave their vehicles in Chickasha over the weekend. A shuttle will be offered Sunday afternoon for people who leave their vehicles in Elk City over the weekend. Camping Friday night is at Elk City Lake near the bike shop, which is also the trailhead. The ride starts Saturday morning on the Elk City Lake Mountain Bike Trails.
Fort Cobb State Park has allowed us to reserve campsites for up to 100 people and will have power, bathrooms, and showers. We are finalizing details for costs and will have a Bike Reg link up soon.
