2014meet&greet

 

Bikes Blues and BBQ is September 24 - 27
18 Wheels MA National Meet & Greet is September 26 & 27

Both are in the Fayetteville/Springdale/Rogers area.

We will be riding up the weekend before, September 20th so we can spend some time riding the Ozark Mountains before these events. We are camping at the Hide-A-Way Campgrounds out on Beaver Lake. (We have confirmed that they will have room for us.) This campgrounds also has RV sites, cabins and sleeping cottages for those that do not wish to sleep in a tent. A campsite for 2 people for the week with water & electric is $100. Call 479-925-1333 to make your reservations. Be sure to tell them you are with 18 Wheels MA so they can put us all in the same area. They will just need a card number to hold the site. They don't charge anything till time of the event. http://www.beaverlakehideaway.com

We are creating this event now so you can make your plans and reservations for a tent, cabin or cottage in advance, before it all books up.

We have planned several day rides on the "Pig Trail," "Devil's Den," "Mount Nebo," "Little Golden Gate Bridge," and others. Below you will find the Google Maps for each of these rides. Feel free to take a close look at these rides. Zoom in and look at the roads and you will see why we have picked these routes.

Since we have several people that really want to do the Mount Nebo/MT Magazine ride and are not able to be there the full week, we will be doing this ride on Thursday, September 25th. We will start by riding down US71, across MT Magazine and over to Mount Nebo. This will allow us to make sure we are able to get both done that day. The less experienced riders or the ones that are not comfortable riding up the 18% grade of Mount Nebo can continue on with the route, find something to do while we are up there, or just catch I40 and head back to camp. This is such a long ride and seems to be the most popular one planned so far. we are really trying to make sure that everyone that wants to do this ride, will be able to.

MOUNT NEBO is an 18% grade and recommended for experienced riders.

We have not assigned a day to each of the other rides at this time. We are waiting to see who wants to ride what route and try to accommodate those that cannot be there all week and have a ride that they would really like to do over the others. Riders with less experience need to fear the routes or being left behind. White Rose will be leading these rides and is a believer of the Biker Code and that no-one gets left behind.

If you have any questions about any of these routes or rides, please contact White Rose at 228-627-8689, or send her an email at cindy.morgan@cindyiniraq.com. We have also set up and event on Facebook. You can find it by looking for "18 Wheels Meet & Greet, BB&B, Ozarks Ride" or just click on the picture at the top of the page.

***EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN US FOR ANY OF THESE RIDES EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT A MEMBER OF 18 WHEELS MA!***

We want to ride AR103 to AR215. (If you zoom in on AR103, you will see why we want to ride it. The curves look awesome!) It looks like AR36 is paved, but AR5440 may not be paved all the way over to AR21. If someone knows, please let us know. If it is paved, then we will ride AR36 & AR5440. If not, then we will take AR215 back to AR23 north to AR16 to AR21.

We have changed the routing on this ride to get us over on some roads that we will not be riding on other rides. We think y'all will like this much better. It will be a long ALL day ride...293 miles. There are a couple of places we can cut some miles off if we find we are running out of day. Please take a look and let us know what ya think of it.

There is a suspension bridge a bit north of Eureka Springs on AR187 that looks like the Golden Gate. This ride will take us across it and up into MO. You will need to bring your helmet for this ride since MO is a helmet state.
