Hundreds of cyclists are getting ready to ride their bikes across the entire state.

Oklahoma Freewheel met this weekend in downtown to reveal plans for its annual bicycle tour.

It's a week-long summer trip from one side of the state to the other, but the route is always a surprise.

This year's ride will start in Comanche and run through Marietta, Tishomingo, Pauls Valley, McLoud, Stillwater, Tonkawa, and it will end in Caldwell, Kansas.

And those towns' residents are excited.

"To see Stillwater get selected as an overnight town is huge," Scott Nutt said. "It reflects the change in mood for Stillwater. It's kind of like there's a wave of excitement going through Stillwater for cycling."

The group will bike as much as 100 miles every day.
