Malcolm McCollam “I’m just a kid who grew up hearing his mom say, “Get outside, and stay outside!” That meant summers exploring drainage ditches, creeks, construction sites, parks and anywhere else he could get to on his Western Flyer Sting Ray purchased with earnings from mowing neighborhood lawns. He graduated to a Sears 10 speed in high school and used it to ride to work at the Ranch Mart movie theatre which is how he discovered the joys of night riding. The bike got destroyed while he attended the University of Kansas, but not his love for riding. After an initial career as a National Bank Examiner and graduating from law school, he moved to Tulsa to begin practicing law, and rediscovered his love of riding. Malcolm joined the Tulsa Wheelmen in the early 1980s and still belongs to that club. He did bike races in the summer and running races in the fall and winter. He co-founded the Maple Ridge Run, helped direct the cycling portion of the first Saint Francis Corporate Challenge and is a co-founder of the Saint Francis Tulsa Tough. After 20 years of being around the cycling community as both a rider and organizer, he believed he had made enough mistakes to be in a position to contribute to the creation of something special and feels blessed to be surrounded by the right combination of talent and energy to have made SFTT what it is today.

Tonja Carrigg grew up in rural Southern Indiana, Tonja and her brother caught the cycling bug riding dirt trails we’d crafted in the neighborhood. Moving to attend The University of Tulsa in 1986 she fell for the city’s outdoor vibe, especially at River Parks. She met her husband Tim, a passionate cyclist, in 1999 at Tulsa’s Oktoberfest.
