If you have the day off and feel like getting some asphalt underneath your tires, try these four hand picked rides that will get you away from your busy schedule.
Historic Route 66 West
Start your trip in Oklahoma City and head the direction the sun sets. With the wide open prairie of western Oklahoma, you won’t be disappointed with what nature has to offer! If you worked up an appetite, head over Robert’s Grill for a World-Famous Onion burger, it is a historic mouthwatering favorite! Fun fact: The burgers date all the way back to 1926 when the price of onions where cheaper than beef.
One outstanding part of this ride is the National Wildlife Refuge. With 64 species of reptiles, more than 50 species of mammals, and even 240 different kinds of birds free ranging on the lands, you will feel like you’re back at the zoo! But be careful, it’s not unusual to see a buffalo crossing at the crosswalk, so be prepared! While riding, don’t forget to stop in Medicine Park, a quiet city with small shops, food and a great background. You have to go to see what it is, but once you get there you won’t want to leave!
Highway 7 to Davis
If you are a nature buff head to south central Oklahoma’s Arbuckle Mountains. Curve your way through the winding hills and whistling creeks. There are plenty of twists and turns for a Motorcycle Paradise! Find your way towards Turner Falls if you’re looking for the perfect Instagram post to show off to your friends. There you will find Oklahoma’s tallest waterfall, a beautiful sight to see.
If you want to take a trip back in time, take your bike north towards Guthrie. Begin your ride at the Santa Fe Depot, which once was the passenger service, mail service, a newsstand, employee living quarters and offices in the early 1900s. If you’re an Oklahoma State Cowboy, you must stop at The Oklahoma territorial Plaza. This open air museum, with the other historic buildings, holds the former home of Frank Eaton. He was the inspiration for a famous Oklahoma Mascot! If you think you know who it is, comment below!
