Portion of the Proceeds to go to Arkansas Latinas en Bici
Bentonville, AR. (August 1, 2022) – The Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce will be holding an in-town “poker run style” biking event, Nabholz Bike & Brew, presented by Kellogg’s. Designed to be fun, not fast, the purpose of this event is to build relationships, serve the community, and promote bike commuting.
This year’s route will take riders around town to 5 featured stops. The kick-off will be at 1 p.m. in downtown Bentonville at 302 NE B St., Bentonville. Guest riders this year are Steuart Walton and Tom Walton, co-founders of Runway Group.
At 2 p.m., it’s on to the charity poker ride, which covers roughly 8 miles over 2 hours, with stops along the way that demonstrate the ease of cycling and invite engagement with local merchants. Riders will have the opportunity to purchase a Poker Score Card, and the rider with a winning hand will go home with an E-bike, courtesy of Schwinn!
A limited number of tickets for a mountain bike-only route, led by Women of OZ NWA, are also available.
After the ride, cyclists will return to B Street for a post-ride party with food, craft beer, live music, and a bicycle stunt show featuring Chris Clark and sponsored by Schwinn. Post-ride party-only tickets are available.
This year’s ride supports Arkansas Latinas en Bici.
