The latest cycling business on the scene is Bike.co, which should fill a wide-open niche in NWA cycling: regional rentals and mobile bike service for tuneups and repairs.
What's happening: Nate Nead, who recently relocated here from Seattle with his wife and four children as part of the Life Works Here talent initiative, launched the company this month.
- The company will pick up your bike and drop it off, or repair it at your location.
- Or, you can drop it at locations in Bella Vista, Bentonville, Fayetteville, Fort Smith, Rogers or Springdale.
- You can also rent road, mountain and gravel bikes in the same cities.
Why it matters: As NWA grows as a cycling tourism destination, businesses like Bike.co can cater to visitors who might skip the trip rather than ship their precious bike.
Why it also matters: It's proof the Life Works Here initiative has attracted talented entrepreneurs who will invest in and enrich our regional economy.
