Bentonville Bike Fest

NWA Daily

Bikes and Bentonville go together like Cardinal Red and the Razorbacks, so it's natural that Bentonville would host a one-of-a-kind festival for bike enthusiasts everywhere.

  • Race to the Top: In the last five years, 500 miles of bike trails have been built throughout NWA. These projects catapulted Bentonville's status in the world of cycling.
  • 100% Bentonville: Bike Fest is coming to Bentonville for the second time this weekend, hosting three days of races, workshops, and other events for cyclists of all skill levels.

Quote: "With the Bentonville Bike Fest we want...to share our passion for this wonderful sport to someone who's never seen a mountain bike in their life but who wants to become fitter or have a great time outdoors."

Grab your bike and head on out to Bike Fest this weekend! You'll find more details about the event HERE.

Fine Dining

NWA Daily

The resilience of people in Northwest Arkansas - especially in the restaurant business is impressive. The past 18 months were not the easiest time to open a restaurant, but there are 20 new restaurants and food trucks that took on that challenge.

  • Something for everyone: From Bella Vista to Fayetteville, these new restaurants offer a variety of excellent food that you've just got to try for yourself. There's Korean food, BBQ, tacos, veggies...if you want it, a place on the list has it! Each of these local restaurants has something unique about what they're serving the community.
  • From experience: One on the list we've personally enjoyed is the HUB Bike Lounge in Bentonville.

If you've been trying to find a new spot, you can check out the 20 new restaurants HERE.

Right of Passage

City of Fayetteville

Fayetteville's cultural arts corridor, occupying 50 acres of outdoor space between Dickson Street and Prairie Street along the Razorback Greenway, has finally been given a name - "The Ramble".

  • Narrowing it down: The name itself is meant to communicate an unhurried pace and open-mindedness and is also a nod to Arkansas-born musician Levon Helm. Helm hosted Midnight Ramble sessions at his home in Woodstock, New York, until 2012.
  • Along the way: The natural area along Tanglewood Branch Creek has been named "Tanglewood Park," a reference to the creek as well as the restored waterway that connects to The Ramble.

The naming precedes projects that will transform The Ramble into an essential outdoor stop. Take a flyover tour HERE.

Health

Double Trouble

NWA Daily

The University of Arkansas has partnered with Springdale-based NOWDiagnostics Inc. to research the prevalence of COVID-19 antibodies in the university's population. The study, launched in March, spells trouble for the virus.

  • On the hunt: The ADEXUSDx COVID-19 antibody test is a finger-prick test, that can detect COVID-19 antibodies in a blood sample within fifteen minutes. The results gathered from this technology will be used to track how the prevalence of antibodies in the university's faculty, staff, and students changes over time.
  • To Arkansas and beyond: The information being collected from this antibody test is providing new insights to virus immunity for communities and governments. The test received Emergency-Use Authorization from the FDA in May and has since been approved for further use in Europe.

The fight against COVID-19 is happening right in our backyard. Read more about the study being carried out by these NWA partners HERE.
