Noah Moody fixes a bike, Thursday, June 22, 2023 at the Phat Tire bike shop in Bentonville. “Walk-ins never stop, and we have to do our scheduled stuff on top of that so it's a juggling act for sure,” said Noah Moody who works in the repair show. “Most of our people are out-of-towners so they need service fast so they can continue their vacation.” The bicycling industry generated $159 million in total economic impacts from cycling-related jobs, tourism revenue and taxes in Northwest Arkansas in 2022, according to a new study from the Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Arkansas Sam M. Walton College of Business. Visit nwaonline.com/photos for today's photo gallery.
