LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – It has been a great weekend for getting out and riding a bike. With that in mind, the River Market and our friends at Chainwheel teamed up for Biketoberfest Sunday.
They put the event together last year for the first time, and it proved to be such a hit that they brought it back. The event celebrates all things bike-related with stunt shows, food, and art. It also featured a bike swap-and-shop -- similar to the ones held at events like Pedalpalooza.
"It's a chance to bring the community together with a little bit of food, a little bit of drink and entertainment, and I think it's a good time to be had not just by cyclists but by the community in general," said Dimitri Harris with Mech Custom Bicycles.
All of the money raised goes toward Recycle Bikes for Kids.
The event helped wrap up Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodala's car-free challenge week.
