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.
