Description

Bike riders from across the nation can enjoy an urban and rural bicycling tour and festival along historic Route 66, beginning and ending in downtown Edmond near Edmond Railyard. In addition to the Crit and the 10-, 33- and 66-mile distance routes, Cycle 66 has also introduced a new 1-mile Kids’ Ride for ages 10 and under on bikes, trikes and striders.

The Routes

  • 1-Mile Kids’ Route: Kids of all ages are welcome to join Cycle 66 on its inaugural 1-mile Kids’ Route. Training wheels, tricycles and strollers are welcome! Kids are encouraged to decorate their rides-of-choice and come ready for fun.
  • 10-Mile Route: This leisurely group ride, best for families and recreational riders, will be led and trailed by experienced riders who will keep the group together and on the right path. The route showcases downtown Edmond, notable public art, the University of Central Oklahoma campus, and the community’s best parks and bike paths.
  • 33-Mile Intermediate Route: This moderate ride is best for intermediate and recreational riders who like a challenge. It begins in Edmond then dips south to the State Capitol. Riders will enjoy the “Party at the Turn” powered by OU Health before cycling back to downtown Edmond.
  • 66-Mile Advanced Route: This adventurous ride is for advanced and intermediate riders looking to push the distance. It travels through five communities including Edmond, Oklahoma City, Jones, Luther and Arcadia, and features the nostalgia and thrill of the Mother Road up close and personal. The route will be in reverse from last year, and will take advantage of beautiful Katy Trail near I-44 and NE Grand Ave.

A portion of event proceeds will benefit Autumn Life Behavioral Health Center.
