The scenic beauty of Arkansas, of course, is reason enough to make a bike ride perfect. The sharp curves and steep hills add excitement and keep you awake. The fact that you can ride the back roads without ever seeing a car... that's icing on the cake. Not that cars are a bad thing. But when there's gorgeous scenery all around and the roads are tricky, Cliff likes to cruise slowly and take in the beauty. If there's an impatient driver in a car behind us and we have no place to pull off and let him pass, our only choice is to speed up.
Here's a video of a part of one of our rides; you might want to turn your sound off to get rid of the wind noise. Notice we didn't meet a single vehicle.
