Biking Series: Gravel Ride & Brew

bicycle-tour-bicycles-bicyclists-17729.jpg

Join us for 37 North’s first biking adventure! Today we will ride through some of the most beautiful Arkansas landscape and we will end the ride at Whistling Springs Brewing Co for some great craft beer. This is an approximately 20 mile ride, around 75%-80% gravel with mostly rolling hills and a couple of steeper hills on the back side but fairly short. But don’t you worry; even though it is an intermediate level ride, it is also a no drop ride and we will go at a leisure pace to enjoy all the beauty the back roads have to offer. 

We will finish the ride at Whistling Springs Brewing Company at Twin Willows Stable for a well deserved local beer. This is a fun and quaint brewery and taproom in a very unique farmhouse location. To top it off, they brew both traditional and gluten-free signature beers. After a fun time at the brewery, we will load all bikes on our transportation and bring everyone back to Bentonville.

*Must bring your own bike and biking gear.
