Rotarians ride along



August 12, 2016 - 12:00 AM

Earlier this summer Bob McKenzie, a Tulsa Rotarian, rode his bicycle through Iola during the 35th annual Ride Across America. Thursday, he told Iola Rotarians about the experience and his devotion to Rotary’s signature project, worldwide eradication of polio.

“Those are my life now, bicycling and raising money for the polio project,” McKenzie said.

As emphasis, he rode his pricey bicycle — it costs $13,000 — 148 miles from his home in Tulsa to Iola, with wife Mickey following along in four-wheel vehicle support, as she did during the race across America.
