It was tough news for Tulsa Tough Ride and Race—300 Schwinns destined for school-age kids tackling a special Tough Kids 10km ride on Sunday have gone missing.
A 40-foot steel shipping container containing the bikes was apparently stolen last weekend from the Pacific Cycles shipping yard.
The youngsters earned the bikes through the Tough Kids Challenge, a program in which middle- and high-school students either participated in Tulsa’s Little 100 cycling event or completed a bicycle-safety education course.
Tulsa Tough Ride and Race launched the youth health and fitness initiative this year with the support of The Children’s Hospital at St. Francis.
The bikes, which sported the Tulsa Tough, Little 100 and Saint Francis logos, were to be delivered on Tuesday and assembled on Wednesday for pickup on Saturday. Organizers were hoping to find loaner bikes for Sunday’s Tough Kids ride.
