LITTLE ROCK ARK. (LRRM) – The Little Rock River Market, Chainwheel and Recycle Bikes for Kids will bring back last year’s hit bicycling event, Biketoberfest, on Sunday, October 19th, from 12pm – 5pm in the River Market Pavilions. This 2nd annual event will feature Bikes, Beer, Music, Art and even more fun than was had in 2013.

“Our first Biketoberfest was a great success with over 400 people in attendance. Everyone had such a good time that we decided to take the best elements of that event and expand both the length of the event and variety of things to do and see as part of it,” said Diana Long, Director of River Market Operations for the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Event elements returning from last year include The Southern BMX Stunt Show who will once again entertain spectators hourly throughout the event with their high flying tricks and crazy bicycling skills; The Adult Trike Race which was a total hoot to participate in and for those watching; the Rat Rod Build-off which showcased some highly creative and wild looking bikes, artists, and a variety of vendors including food trucks.

New this year, the event welcomes the Mayor’s Car Free Challenge, food trucks and the inclusion of a PedalPalooza style bicycle swap and shop event.
