I plan to join arkansasgal and her group for a ride on Sat. July 10 on my way back from Colorado. Hopefully other riders in the area can come along. I've not been around Fayetteville and am looking forward to seeing some of the area on the bike.

I grew up in Fayetteville and attended the University of Arkansas (GO HOGS!). I also started cycling there in the early 1970s. In September 1977 I raced as a USCF Cat IV in the first Tour de Hogeye and actually placed third! Unless you're an accomplished climber, low gears are mandatory in hilly northwest Arkansas.

I'll be in Fayetteville that weekend and would love to join your ride!

Hi Steve -- we would love to have you join the Roadies, along with Bike WNC, on July 10. I sent you an email. We have another Roadie from Louisiana who is working here in Northwest Arkansas.

I used to ride regularly with a dude named Peter Main back when I lived in Shreveport in the late 1980s. I understand that he lives in F'ville now. Does he ride with your group?

Well, I'm in Russellville, Ar this evening. First time in this State! It got prettier once I drove west of Little Rock. It's a bit warm (freakin hot!) here. lol
