Good to hear that there are road rides organized in Arkansas. It's a beautiful state that doesn't often get the positive press it deserves. I'm from MO, even though I haven't lived there for 12 years now, but I have done some riding in AR.

Hey - Northwest Arkansas is where I used to ride Spring training rides. Like Havana to Paris via MT Magazine.

One of the few roads in the state with genuine switchbacks on a climb.......

Riding the Quachita Forest is great as well.........

Well Richard -- you will just have to plan a weekend trip to Fayetteville and come have some fun riding with the Roadies.

One of these days I hope to join up with one of your rides. I am buying a house across the border from you in Tahlequah, OK, so meeting up with your group would not be difficult with the right planning. On the Oklahoma side there are plenty of serious hills, (mostly) well maintained, almost car free country roads, and spectacular scenery, much like I expect you have in Fayetteville. (Okay, you have SERIOUS hills around Fayetteville). I envy you your good fortune to ride there all the time. Soon....
