USDCA / D3 Bentonville Bikeboom 2023

October 11, 2023 - October 15, 2023

USDCA / D3 Bentonville Bikeboom 2023
Angry Dave's Flying Ad

Welcome to the 3rd annual Bikeboom, Deaf Bike Festival; a 3 day social/gathering event filled with clinics, ride tours, volunteering, and having a good time with the D/deaf community.

Your participation contributes to the growth of the D/deaf cycling community, whether it’s a road, gravel, or mountain bike. We all share a common goal, to have fun on bikes and connect with like-minded individuals.

To register for the event, we would like to have everyone keep in mind the goal of the Bikeboom events:

To provide a place for Deaf participants to get priority in registration for the event since Deaf individuals are underserved and underprivileged. Deaf individuals get the benefits of having free bike rentals and free campgrounds.

Everyone else who is not D/deaf is welcome to mingle with us, you will not need to register. Show up and your donation is MUCH appreciated.
