Tulsa, Oklahoma — The nationally known annual Tulsa tradition has been revived. On Friday, the Tulsa Tough race will begin after the pandemic forced the organizers to cancel last year.
A three-day bike race action will begin on Friday in the Blue Dome area. The organizers told 2News that the race aims to promote a healthy and active lifestyle while mapping Tulsa.
It is also the mission of Tulsa Tough’s Divas program. This program helps women learn how to ride a bike safely while at the same time providing an active community of participation. This year they have a record membership.
The group is now growing into more than 120 women who ride their bikes together a couple of times a week. Many of them race on weekends.
Alex Ervin is one of the divas competing in this weekend’s race. She joined the group last March after working long hours at the forefront of the pandemic.
She found this program to be a great way to relieve stress, become healthy and empower women. She tells 2 news that many of her fellow “diva” have similar stories.
“Everyone is so isolated and this is a great opportunity to get out of the house and get in shape and meet others. As my first year as a diva, I know it was a great opportunity. “I will.” Said Irvine.
Veteran Divas help newcomers to the group learn how to cycle safely. The group welcomes beginner cyclists.
