The Bike Route Highway 71 Classic

Highway 71 Classic is a must do around these parts. It's a fundraiser ride for the Bicycle Coalition of the Ozarks. What is the BCO? Well now, glad you asked. "Bicycle Coalition of the Ozarks, a 501(c)3 non-profit with the mission of creating a more bike-friendly Northwest Arkansas through education programs for all users of the road and advocacy for bike infrastructure" (BCO website). Click on the link above to find out more about the BCO. If you ride a bicycle in NWA chances are these folks have helped make that a more enjoyable experience. BCO partnered with some great sponsors for this event. Places I shop and eat at regularly. A big thanks to the BCO for putting on a great ride and for all the advocacy work they do. Good times.

Registration at the Greenhouse Grille. Have you had the fried mushrooms yet?

The Bike Route. Always PRO.

Two incredible inventions. The wheel of course and the bicycle. 

Great mixture of cyclists. Common denominator? Bike riding!

Fast group. Cold start.

Refuel stop at the midway point in Mountainburg.

More bikes.

No more photos from this point on. Why? I was too busy suffering. Ever have one of those days when it feels like someone flipped a switch and the power just shuts off. Big thanks to the small group that towed me back to Fayetteville.

Thanks for sharing The Bike Route Highway 71 Classic. I also join many bike riding which are designed for some local community fundraising. I really like these type of supportive racing.
