It was a busy week of meeting with cycling industry leaders in Bentonville, Arkansas. Bentonville is a town with a growing presence in the cycling industry thanks not only to the expansion of trails but also to a growing social and business infrastructure supporting cycling businesses. Attendees at the Cycle of Influence Summit last week had the opportunity to visit a couple of remarkable facilities which are both supporting and a result of this growth.
The panelists offered diverse experiences for every topic discussion resulting in a focused audience, attentive to every word. The Summit also offered two off-site visits–The attendees visited North Western Arkansas Community College which offers an impressive mechanics certification course and also Allied Cycles for a factory tour of their carbon bike building facility.
