Springdale to host The Natural State Criterium Series cycling event

Northwest Arkansas News

SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The City of Springdale is hosting a multi-week state cycling event.

The Natural State Criterium Series kicked off Wednesday night. The series goes from beginner level to pro-level which, according to cyclist Dustin Schlake, can get pretty competitive and fast-paced.

“You’re gonna have speeds of over 30 miles per hour at times and ride pretty much shoulder to shoulder, rubbing elbows so it’s a little bit of NASCAR. Hopefully it doesn’t have the same amount of crashes and devastation but it’s a good time.”

The series continues through August 8.
