Tulsa Tough

Tulsa Tough is a three-day cycling event that is held in the Bluedome Arts District, Brady Arts District and Riverside Drive in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Susan B. Anthony called the bicycle the "Freedom Machine" which Tulsa Tough adopted as their theme for their 12th year of the event. This theme also honored the 200th anniversary of the invention of the bicycle. Most of my photos focus on the Women's Pro Races each day of the festival. This was my first year to cover the event, and although Cry Baby Hill was an insane place to try and take photos, I really enjoyed capturing these shots.
