Local Group Rolls into Thanksgiving Day


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — One local group decided to kick off their Thanksgiving with a scenic bike ride around the city. 

The Fayetteville Wheelman hosted its annual Turkey Roll on Turkey Day around the Turkey Loop this morning. 

The ride started about 15 years ago as a way to prepare for all the food that will be consumed later in the day.

Fayetteville Wheelman has been around for over 20 years and started as a racing group, but over the years has grown to include riders of all ages and skill levels.

Dustin Schlake said the group helped his transition to northwest Arkansas where he and his wife recently moved.  

“We didn’t have any family in this area and having Thanksgiving and a Thanksgiving ride, the Triple T ride if you will, is just one of those things that you can’t pass up,” Schlake said.
