We will ride through the outskirts of Crystal Bridges Museum, then northward towards Bella Vista.

Those who wish to take part in the ride will need to reserve their own bicycle rentals. This is easily done online at Phat Tire's website . Those who wish to call the store can do so at 479-715-6170 .
