We came to Oklahoma City on our way from the northwest to the southeast in hopes of riding a couple of bike trails (the Oklahoma River Trail and South Grand Trail); however, it was not to be. We'd been having mostly very good weather during our trip, so we knew our luck would run out eventually. On our only full day in the city, we had windy, rainy weather that just wasn't going to work for bicycling. So, instead of riding, we caught up on some indoor tasks (like blogging, working on photographs, and so forth).
The next morning, the sun was shining brightly (although it was still windy), so we took the opportunity to swing through downtown on our way out of town. Barry is an avid baseball fan so wanted to see the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and all the baseball statues and history depicted there in honor of some of the sport's preeminent players. And a weekday morning after rush hour was a great time to see downtown as it was very quiet.
Our next stop is Little Rock, Arkansas, where we had better cycling weather. Stay tuned!
Emily & Barry
We're a long-married, early-retired couple who are currently traveling as nomads with no fixed home base. After years of living in North Carolina (Emily's home state), we spent 18 months living oceanfront on Ambergris Caye, Belize, a year road-tripping the US in a Honda CR-V, a year in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and are now roaming North America in our 32' motorhome, Pearl, following warm weather whenever possible.
