A great review about the IMBA World Summit held in Bentonville, AR last November.
So, I’m a little jealous of what Bentonville has been able to accomplish. I wish we had a Walton family. I wish our Governor saw the value of outdoor destinations for drawing talent and tourism, like Arkansas’ Governor Hutchinson has (he even spoke to us about it at the Summit). But that doesn’t mean we’re giving up. The IMBA Summit and the City of Bentonville have inspired me to continue pushing – to help reach that dream. But, until then, Chillicothe, Ohio will have to remain the Town and County minivan of mountain biking. And that’s not all bad.
