General Information

Founded in 1979, the Bartlesville Pedalers Bicycle Club is a group of bicyclists of all ages and levels of interest who share a love of bicycling, from a short pedal around the neighborhood to "Centuries" (100 mile tours), from BMX to mountain biking to racing. We get together for regularly scheduled rides throughout the year, as well as participate in numerous regional bicycling events, including the annual ride across the state, OK FreeWheel.

Our aim is to support the bicycling lifestyle, whatever that entails for each member. We welcome anyone who shares an interest in any aspect of bicycling, and are ready to help you achieve your bicycling goals.

The best way to meet us in on your bike. Air up your tires, grab your helmet, and come out to one of our many scheduled rides. You'll see what this hobby is all about.
