WalStreet Bike & Brew

The WalStreet Bike & Brew event is a high energy with a relaxed feel, next gen social event. It is a great advertising vehicle for members and business wishing to network and market to this targeted audience, while enjoying the world class outdoor amenities NWA has to offer.

Enjoy the 34 mile round trip ride along the Razorback Greenway, from Bike Rack Bentonville at 8th Street Market Place to Bike Rack's newest location in Springdale at 205 E. Johnson E. and back.  You will enjoy a great lunch from the Snack Lab, and Bike Rack will be pouring some brews.  Onelife Events will be on hand to play some great music. There will be a shuttle opportunity that will take you and your bike back to the Bike Rack in Bentonville at 8th street if you don't want to ride back, followed by a post-ride party that will include an Awesome Bike Stunt Show with Chris Clark presented by Pacific Cycle, music, refreshments, and door prizes!
