Baseball fans listen up, here’s some news you may not want to hear. Minor League Baseball announced the 2020 Season for all of its clubs has been canceled due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. That includes the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. Those working closely with the team say it would’ve been hard to come up with a safe plan for the 160 Minor League teams across the country.
Is your bicycle in need of a tune-up before you feel safe hitting the trails this summer? You’re in luck! Bentonville Brewing Company and “Play Tri Rogers” have partnered to bring you.

Just bring your bike to Bentonville Brewing Company for a free tune up between 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. There are drink specials while you wait, if you are so inclined.
Speaking of bikes, perhaps you should get that tune-up so that you can participate in the Square 2 Square Ride Challenge.
