Freewheel Conversations: Day 1

Jun 9, 2014

KOSU's OK Freewheel special correspondent: First-time tour participant Vicki Ehlers.

The OK Freewheel bicycle tour across Oklahoma is underway, as hundreds of riders pedal their way from south to north. Beginning today and continuing all week long, we’ll be checking in with our special correspondent, Vicki Ehlers, as she shares her observations from the road as a first-time participant.

The first leg of the journey was yesterday -- a 79-mile ride from Comanche to Marrietta in southern Oklahoma -- and that’s where Ehlers took a breather to visit with KOSU’s Paula Brown about her experience so far.

Hear more from Paula and Vicki all week long at 7:33 A.M. on Morning Edition on KOSU as Ehlers pedals her way toward the Kansas border.  You can learn more about this year’s OK Freewheel journey at
