A bunch of Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas riders are converging on Eureka Springs, AR for the 10th (?) annual Hillbilly Dual Sport Ride. This is a fun filled weekend of easy dual sport riding down gravel and dirt roads and a fair amount of pavement. Originally put on by “Uncle Dave” out of Kansas, this ride has grown into a big event with over 100 riders showing up for a good time. The host motel is the Ozark Swiss Inn 3601 E Van Buren phone 1-800-833-8450 or 479-253-6688. This is an informal dual sport ride that features everything from awesome paved twisties to fairly gnarly single track.
There are no registration fees, T shirts or BS just a bunch of dual sporters having fun and riding the great trails around Eureka Springs. There is a group get together in the evenings and lots of beer drinking and bench racing will take place. There are excellent restaurants and cafés in the area as well as many unique one of a kind places to eat out on the trail.
