Drive safely along Hwy 12!
Although the Bikes, Blues & BBQ rally for 2020 and 2021 was canceled, the popular event has been resurrected with a new host city in 2022: Rogers.
The event was moved because the original host city unceremoniously saw the University of Arkansas (through a local medical facility) withdraw permission to use a large parking lot on campus as the main Fayetteville venue ... and that was only four weeks before the start of BBB.
This year the BBB committee eventually determined that they couldn't take a chance that the Fayetteville venue would again be withdrawn, so they moved the event north to Rogers (with additional venues also in nearby cities).
For riders wanting a quick and enjoyable ride try the AR Hwy 12 loop, a great adventure every rider should check off his or her bucket list when they are in Northwest Arkansas -- especially now that BB&BBQ is coming back to northwest Arkansas in October 2022 in full force. The Hwy. 12 ride can be adjusted to include a trip to Eureka Springs and US 62 on to Gateway and back to Rogers. Give this adaptable ride a try. You'll be glad you did.
