"Ride to Recovery: Cycling as Rehabilitation" at the Oklahoma Bike Summit 2017
On this edition of StudioTulsa, we learn about the Oklahoma Bike Summit 2017, which will happen later this week (the 19th and 20th) in Muskogee and Tahlequah -- and which will, per its website, focus "on attaining physical and mental well-being through bicycling. It will address bicycling for individuals with disabilities, as spiritual and emotional healing process, and to improve the health of a whole community." Our guest is Jayme Brown, who will give an address entitled "Ride to Recovery: Cycling as Rehabilitation" at this summit. Brown is an active cyclist as well as the Central Region Manager for Project Hero, a nationwide non-profit founded in 2008 and dedicated to helping veterans and first responders affected by PTSD, TBI, and other injuries. Also on today's program, we offer a commentary from Mark Darrah: "The Navy Blazer."
