Why pay for a bike ride?

“Why should I spend money for a Fondo when I can ride for free on my own?”

We have heard this question many times. And there's a really great answer...

The Saint Francis Tulsa Tough isn't just a bike ride. The Saint Francis Tulsa Tough isn’t just a t-shirt ride. Sure, there are bikes. And there are t-shirts. But it's so much more.

Saint Francis Tulsa Tough is a 16-year-old festival of human-powered movement through Tulsa and counties contiguous. We are a community cheering each other on to exceed what we thought was possible. We are a fully-supported adventure through northeastern Oklahoma on roads packed with other intrepid cyclists. No matter which route you choose, you finish with an after party of the best criterium racing on the planet to watch as you swap stories of your epic day.

We fully cater both fondos with a comically large amount of food at the exact moment you start getting really hungry. We happen to supply you with as much COOP Ale Works beer you can possibly want after your ride is over. (Oh, there’s a killer t-shirt too.)

Over the years, we have seen thousands of riders live healthier lives, find community and fall in love with this sport. When you buy a Fondo entry, you are not just buying a bike ride. Because we don’t offer that. Saint Francis Tulsa Tough is a celebration of people doing extraordinary things with support, food, encouragement, beer and shwag along the way.

Here’s our pitch: This human-powered adventure won't be the same without your presence. It's true. The more, the merrier. The more, the stronger. The more, the better in every way. Join us on June 11 and 12. It won't be the same without you!
