Unholy Rollers - Arkansas River Trail Bike Ride

And you thought Hell's Angels were trouble! Join us for a fun and leisurely ride along the Arkansas River Trail. We'll meet up at River Trail Bicycle Rentals at 11:00am.  Plenty of free parking by the rental shop, or in the Verizon Arena South parking lot. We'll saddle up and ride counterclockwise up the North Little Rock side, cross the Big Dam Bridge, then back towards downtown where we'll chain our bikes outside the Flying Saucer (smoke-free and kid-friendly) and replace the calories we just burned with lunch and a couple of pints of the Devil's brew. How sinful! Then cross the Clinton Presidential Park Bridge back to the start point.

Even for those who seldom ride, this is an easy, level, paved trail, with plenty of rest stops, restrooms, and drinking fountains along the way.  It's a great activity for the kids.  We'll ride as slow as we need to for any kids or novices.  River Trail Bicycle Rentals offers half-day rentals (4 hours) which is ample time to complete the ride and lunch. Call ahead to reserve a bike if you intend to rent.

Check back here the day before and morning of the ride in case of weather cancellation.

      ???? Wear a jacket. I'm bringing my yellow windbreaker, and will probably end up stuffing it in my pack.

    I would caution you all not to rent from River Trail Rentals. I have seen their bikes fall apart while on the RT. As in the crank pedal fell off. They will not even answer the phone to come pick you up if it happens. You get to walk back and they won't even say they are sorry.

      In my limited experience with them, I was riding with 2 out of town friends who rented. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and patient as they tried out different bike styles, and got them adjusted. But it was a slow weekday. Their bikes seemed to be in good condition. I'm sure it's hit & miss. In any case, if you intend to rent, please show early and check out the bike thoroughly, take a few laps around the parking lot, etc, before we all head out on the trail.

    For those intending to rent, please show up earlier so you'll have time to pick a bike, get it adjusted, paperwork, etc. They also will be busy on a sunny weekend.
