This morning we mixed it up a bit. The Saturday Ride headed north to join up with our friends in Bentonville to tackle The Killer Loop (73 miles, 6,000 gain) one of their favorites and now one of mine. A special thanks to Ben C and Will F for shepherding us along. Looking forward to more of these collaborations in the future! Folks you need to put this route on your bucket list. I will be putting out a more detailed description under the Routes Tab very soon. One of the things I love about the bicycle is how it brings people together. It was a great morning adventuring through the Ozarks. We had some serious horse power in the group and I was happy to sit in the wheels. Getty up!
The Bentonville Square was jam packed with the farmer’s market, Bentonville Film Festival and of course the spandex rodeo!
A look back.
Fast from the get go.
Part of why I love this so much.
Tons of twisty-turny Ozark goodness on super smooth roads.
So close to finishing! Wheels overlapped in a turn and Johnny Law took a spill. It happens and we cyclists know the risks involved. JL is a tough SOB and his broken clavicle will heal.
We checked out the new Backyard at Greenehouse Grille. Let’s Eat!
Total climbing: 5568 ft
