The routes include:

  • 5 Kilometer Ride

  • 100 Kilometer Ride

Registration is $42 before the day of the ride, and then is $45 for same day registration. Tandem riders are asked to register separately. Included in that price is a Tallgrass Tour Dri-fit t-shirt, a Tallgrass Tour water bottle, and a dinner provided to all the riders after their ride. 

All riders will begin at the Ponca City City Hall at 516 East Grand Avenue at 7 a.m. Sept. 30. Maps for each route are posted on https://www.tallgrasstour.com/route .
