Saturday July 5 Arkansas mountains--anyone interested?(3 posts)

Saturday July 5 Arkansas mountains--anyone interested?JS Haiku Shop

i'm putting together a one-day trip to ride the highpoint of arkansas, and probably bag a couple other closeby mountains as well. i posted about this in february, but there was no resoponse (probably time of year).

likely there will be a few of us driving the 250 miles from memphis, and would like to start the ride in the late AM.

probable start location is havana ar, about 100 miles NE of little rock.

there's a 60-mile bike route noted on the arkansas website. about 40 miles from mt. magazine is the Petit Jean, another mountain, and also Mount Nebo. the other two are within 8 miles of each other, so i'm attempting to locate roads to tie them in together for a nice day of riding. i'm thinking about abbreviating the 60-miler over mt. magazine (highpoint), then driving to a neutral location to climb the other two. overall, i'd like to get 50-70 miles of riding over these 3 mountains.

whatever the route and plan, i will be sure to make cues & maps.

if anyone's interested in joining the group, you'd be a welcome addition. respond online or contact me at for more info or to confirm.

also, if anyone has local knowledge, please chime in. suggestions and advice would be most appreciated.

I just moved to Springfield, MO from Los Angeles and have been missing the mountains. It looks like it wouldn't be that far of a drive for me, so I'm interested!
