Trevor Steward: Executive Director

A native of Arizona, Trevor first came to Oklahoma in the fall of 2011 to attend Oklahoma State University.  In the spring of 2012, he took the reins as president of the OSU Cycling Club and rebuilt the once struggling club into what was then one of the biggest sports clubs on campus.  After graduating in the spring of 2014, Trevor decided to stay in Oklahoma due to its amazing cycling culture and cycling community.  Trevor likes to claim that he is never far from his bike and his bike is never far from a good beer.  Cheers!

She has been cycling on and off ever since. Carolyn enjoys multisport events, and bicycle tourism. She has completed every mile of Oklahoma Freewheel five times. She treasures the restorative effects of seeing Oklahoma’s quiet, subtle beauty from the saddle. Carolyn, a veterinarian, also keeps an eye out for the state’s beloved flora and fauna while riding.
