The Rule of $3.99

January 20, 2024 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Rule of $3.99
Searcy Hiking/Waterfalls

January 20, 2024 is the Rule of $3.99 community bike extravaganza! 

We’ll gather that Saturday morning at Bike Rack Brewing and head out for some beautiful miles on NWA tarmac, gravel, and singletrack…all on one bike.  Afterwards we’ll convene back together at Bike Rack for beer, food, fellowship, and most importantly you’ll have the opportunity to register EARLY for the main event:  Rule of Three on May 18th, 2024 before we open registration to the public on February 5th.

Rule of $3.99:  Please note:  The courses will NOT be marked and will be self supported.  The routes will be sent the week of the Rule of $3.99.  You MUST have a GPS computer or old school directions written down to navigate.

Courses will include:  Tarmac, gravel and singletrack.  One bike.  Race or don’t race.  Enjoy the day the way you see fit.  No podiums, just unofficial finish times on Strava.

You can expect:

-Free food and event insurance brought to you by our presenting partner:  Ozark Foundation.

-Free event tee thanks to Visit Bentonville!

-Free Bike Rack beer brought to you by our good friends at Chamois Butt’r.

-Free ENERGY (espresso) from our friends at Rapha.

-Free delicious HOT coffee from our friends at the Meteor Cafe.

-Great last minute bike mechanical support from Phat Tire Bike Shop.

-Aid Station hosted by Allied Cycle Works.

-Good times with friends and soon to be new friends with maybe a few more surprises!

$3.99?  The (not so) fine print:

BikeReg will charge you $46.09 ($42.10 + $3.99 service fee) and after you check in on race day, you’ll be refunded $42.10 or you can opt in to donate your reg fees to our friends at Pedal it Forward…  They bring bikes and smiles to people in need right here in our community.  Donations help go towards buying parts and new bikes. Check out their website to find out how you can donate your used bikes, money or your time:  https://www.pedalitforward.org/give.html

Why are we doing this?  We have a limited number of spots and want to make sure we can get as many people who want to be at the event- at the event.  You know how it goes, if its FREE there’s no obligation to show up…….so, if it’s a bit too chilly for you the morning of race day or perhaps you made some bad choices the night before and don’t show up-you won’t be refunded.  But check in on race day and you’ll be refunded $42.10.

*Transfer to a friend or change your category:   Find a friend and transfer your registration to them or change your category by clicking on the “Edit My Entry” button at the top of the reg page.  Last day for changes:  Friday, 1/19/24 @ Noon.
