Paceline Cyclery Black Friday Event


Paceline of Tahlequah is encouraging people to skip black Friday and instead participate in a healthy event that benefits the shelter.


“Looking for a reason to avoid the shopping mall madness on Black Friday?

If so, join us for a 18, 26, or 52 mile ride on Black Friday thru some of the most scenic rural roads in Cherokee County..

This is a self-supported ride with several convenience stores along the routes to serve as “Rest Stops”.

This is a totally free event.
However, we do ask participants to bring an item or two to donate to the Humane Society of Cherokee County

We are very happy to see this type of event happen in Tahlequah and very thankful that the event will benefit our shelter.

Please visit this link to view the event on Facebook and to join the event:
