Toward the last of February we had a warm spell here in Tulsa so I decided to forego the gerbil activity at the gym and get the old bike, air up the tires and head out on the Riverparks trails.
I went from the south end clear to the north end without stopping so the Bear Fountain pic above was where I started and this pic of downtown Tulsa is at the north end.
I turned 90 degrees from the above pic. We have lots and lots of homeless people here in Tulsa. It is sad and getting worse.
And then I headed back south. I stopped at lots of these sculptures to check them off my warmarking list. Check out waymarking.com. It’s a gps enabled hobby kind of like geocaching.
Anyway, 14+ miles down!!
I am linking with Skywatch Friday.
Another jigsaw puzzle I did on my Ipad.
Great ride you shared with awesome photos ~ homeless people are so sad ~
Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

Nice ride and the weather looks pretty mild in Tulsa. The sculptures are interesting.
The unhoused problem in Denver is also sadly growing. It seems potent drug use is a major factor, also untreated mental illness, and the high cost of housing. It’s very sad to see so many suffering.
Congrats on the 14+ miles. It’s got to be more fun than the gym! I like the cougar sculpture.
I like your puzzle. It must have been fun to do. It’s sad that there are so many homeless in every city. I don’t remember anything like it when I was a kid a hundred years ago.
Great pictures. So sorry about all the homeless.
Gongrats on your biking season start. In Finland some people bicycles all year around. Not me. There´s snow and below freezing point temps. I´ll wait until it´s 20C (68F). I´d say it´s good 6 to 8 weeks from now. Can´t wait.
Really good sculptures.
After all those miles and not a bead of sweat. Disturbing about the homeless, nobody wants this for anyone yet society can’t seem to solve the issues, often related to mental illness and/or drug addiction.
These sculptures are awesome.
Son lindas estatuas. Te mando un beso.
Interesting sculptures. The mill on your puzzle is in a state park in West Virginia. I was there a few years ago.
An acrobat on bike in #4 – hehehe. What an awesome photo!
Congrats to 14 miles and a nice puzzle. I’ve just finished an alalog-one…
Our winter is back, but I must ride my bike every day for my alldays ways, life without a car can be a hard life (when you haven’t healthy legs)…
Homeless people are a problem here too.
Greetings from Germany
You have some great photos. Looks like a great ride and the sculptures are very cool. That puzzle is really nice too. It reminds me of a mill in Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains.
We visited Greenville, South Carolilna last month and my husband had to use a public restroom downtown. It’s right out in the open there. A couple of homeless people were in the men’s room talking while my husband was in there and one told the other that he was a homeless vet – that is something our country should be ashamed of, especially. Interesting statues. I explored the Waymark site and almost forgot to return to your post. The hobby is intriguing!
What a nice bike ride! It’s so sad that our country has so many homeless people.
Nice to see you and this is an enjoyable series of photos. We have a lot of homeless here too, wish something could be done for them. There is one gentleman who lives at the top of a hill in a tent, and people seem to take care of him, giving him food and other necessities. He has a dog and people buy the dog food also. There is also a local gym that seems to have taken him under their wing.
Alan – great ride for the first one of the year! All that gerbil activity is paying off. Love your jigsaw puzzle – what a terrific romantic/yesteryear picture!
It’s so sad to see the homeless.
Congrats on the 14+ miles!
Happy Saturday, Yogi.
good for you! I haven’t opened bike season yet. cycling along any kind of water is my favourite.
You had a great ride. It is sad that the homeless people are increasing. Beautiful sculptures.
It looks so warm! Great sculptures!
