    I think I'm the only person from Arkansas on here...

    Am I?
    I ride my bike because I love to ride, it makes me feel better, it's good for the planet, it helps keep me in shape, it is fun, because it is what I love to do.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    No, there are lots of AR folks here. I guess they're hibernating until spring. I haven't seen any of their group ride announcements in a while.

    Haha, I live in Fort Smith, and ride all around town. I just couldn't find any other Arkansas fold on here...

    I have one main bike, and a few project bikes. There is a thread (Here: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...fy-TechtraLITE ) on my main bike. Some call it crap, I love it. :-)


    Hope to hear from some of the cool southern people on here!

    My son and I are new riders. He's 12 and is self motivated to be the best rider he can be. He is buying himself a Jamis Ventura sport for his first road bike. Ive been trying out a few bikes and have decided to order myself a Jamis Quest sometime this week.
    We've been riding with the local shop on the weekends and went out for our first 30 mile trip last weekend but was cut short (12 miles) because of the rain. Hopefully get to do it this weekend.
    looking forward to doing the 50 mile at the Big Dam Bridge 100 the fall!

    Can you guess which state I live in?

    I know at least two other people from Little Rock in real life who are registered on here.

    That's okay. I've always heard that LA stands for Lower Arkansas.

    I'm an Arkie. I have a hybrid but am probably going to get a road bike for my next toy.

    This must be the right place. I'm from San Antonio and working and staying in downtown Little Rock for three-weeks in November. Anyone have a good recommendation for a 10-20 mile route? I don't mind hills or climbing. I try to ride 3-4/week and average 16-20mph.

    Oh. Also. I'd appreciate a recommendation on a good bike shop. Not a sporting goods store that sells bikes.

    Spokes is the nearest shop to Downtown. I like Chainwheel, but they are a little further down the road. A quick google will pull up their addresses and websites. Orbea has their offices right in the downtown area, while not really a "bike shop," it's fun to stare at the shinys in the window.

    Brent- The Arkansas River Trail is a nice ride. Regardless of where you start, you can loop right back to where you started. It's right at 16 miles if you make the complete loop. I would suggest Googling Arkansas River Trail and take a look at the map. It's mostly a pedestrian/ cycling trail but there is a temporary section on the Little Rock side that utilizes streets and sidewalks but it is marked pretty well. Like Smashville said there are a couple good bike shops but I prefer Chainwheel in the West part of town. There are actually a couple bike rental places on the River Trail if you're traveling without your wheels.

    I'm bringing my own ride, but will check-out Chainwheel. Is Spokes the Orbea offices? I see they sell Orbea. I've got to try one out. I'm doing a serious upgrade in a couple months and I know why I'm considering Cannondale and Bianchi, but there's something about Orbea. They just look damn cool. And I like orange.
