On the evening of Friday, October 7th, Wabi Cycles held a grand opening bash for our new headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma. By all reports, the event was a wild success! More than 200 people came through the door, and many were able to chat with Wabi Cycles’ founder Richard Snook. We partnered with the Tulsa Hub for the event, donating a Wabi Classic for a raffle they ran during the party. Local cyclist Jeffrey Beltran won the raffle and will get his new Classic very soon.
The Tulsa Hub is the only non-profit in Oklahoma providing certified bicycling-for-transportation education, refurbished bicycles, safety gear, and follow-up support to people in poverty, people with physical and mental disabilities, and people who are otherwise disenfranchised in our community.
The party coincided with the Brady Arts District First Friday Art Crawl event, and local artist John Hammer had several paintings on display. A great restaurant here in the District, Hey Mambo, provided delicious pizza. Hey Mambo is one of our favorite spots for lunch and is owned by avid local cyclist Scott Moore.
