Bike builder to share skills at University of Arkansas event
If you've ever looked at a bike and thought, "I could build that," you can test that theory on March 9.
What's happening: Steve McGuire, creator of the University of Iowa's handmade bicycle curriculum, will present "Design, Build, Ride" and show off a titanium bike made for NWA's trails.
- The University of Arkansas is sponsoring the event.
The big picture: Bentonville is the self-proclaimed "mountain biking capital of the world," cycling-related companies are opening offices in NWA, and last spring, Northwest Arkansas Community College's bicycle assembly and repair technician program saw its first group graduate.
The bottom line: The industry has traction in Arkansas, and those with an eye for art and discipline for engineering could design the next big deal in bikes.
Attend the event: The event is Thursday, March 9 from 6-8pm at 700 SE 5th St., #130, in Bentonville.
- Admission is free but registration is required.
