Bikes, Blues & BBQ
Ride the Ozarks!
The 2012 Bikes Blues and BBQ Motorcycle rally was an unqualified success, so we have no choice but to try to top that for 2013. Of course, everyone who comes to Northwest Arkansas gushes about the beautiful rides we have. We’ll have some recommendations for you this year about roads on which you may never have ridden. Panoramic mountain vistas, rivers and lakes, exhilarating twisties, picturesque Ozark towns, friendly people, and some of the best food in the world! It’s simply motorcycle heaven.
And the rally itself? How about free live music with more blues than we’ve ever had to go along with Wednesday’s “roots and bluegrass” night and “the rock n roll dance party of Saturday night”. But, we’re gonna emphasize the blues on Thursday and Friday nights. Big James and the Chicago Playboys for some jumpin’ Chicago style blues, R.J. Mischo the world class blues harpist, TrickBag with Texas blues rock, Leah and the MoJo Doctors, the fabulous Tulsa Bluesman Jr. Markham, and more. If you’re a fan of the blues, we’ll take care of you this year!
But, BBB is more than great rides and music. The Stokes Air Bike Show, the BBB Car Show, Miss Bikes Blues and BBQ Contest, the BBB Karaoke contest, the Lawn Mower Pulls. How about the Arkansas Air and Military Museum’s “Bikes Blues and Bombers Air Show” featuring vintage war planes in which you can actually go up. Imagine riding in the bombardier’s seat in a WWII bomber.
So, we’ll see you Sept. 18-21. It’s going to be a party
