After 3 years of endless drought, we here in central Oklahoma at least, were with desperately needed rain. It’s gotten so extreme, that our city reservoirs must release water to prevent flooding. After a tip from my Mother, Grace and I took a little photo date down to the Lake Overholser Dam to catch some photos […]
A Blue and White GT Series 4 bicycle was stolen from a garage last night in Bethany near Lake Overholser. Here is a detailed description of the bicycle.

Actually, as I reported on twitter, it officially opened last Tuesday, but I haven’t had a chance to go by and take some pictures. However, the bridge looks great and the road surface is smooth as silk. I have to admit I’m going to have a little nostalgia for the old days of hopping over giant holes in the pavement. Not very much, but a little. Below are a few more pictures of bridge:
While the Old Route 66 Bridge along Lake Overholser is undergoing much needed deck repair, cyclists have been forced to take an unappealing detour along busy 39th street to cross over the Lake Overholser spillway. To help make this passage safer, Oklahoma City has placed signs such as the one shown right on both sides of 39th street and have run street sweepers along the detour route. While I did still see quite a bit of debris still on the shoulder, the route is much much clearer than before and it very passable.
