By now, most Tulsans know this much about Saint Francis Tulsa Tough: it’s a three-day event in June that welcomes not only the world’s best competitive cyclists but recreational bicyclists as well — kids, adults, fast, slow  — and everywhere you look, it’s a party.

But what is the larger mission of Tulsa Tough? On this week’s Listen Frontier podcast we discuss that issue with two members of the Tulsa Tough, Inc., board of directors, Mike Dodson and Dr. Jennifer Donnelly.

Enjoy the conversation, and be sure to check out the races and related events. The first races are Friday night in the Blue Dome district.
