The Bicycle Coalition of the Ozarks will host their annual Highway 71 Classic ride on Sunday, March 4.

There are two choices for routes, including a 75 mile out-and-back ride to Mountainburg and back, and a 36 mile ride to Brentwood and back to Fayetteville. Registration is from 8-9 a.m. on Sunday at Greenhouse Grille, and cyclists will depart shortly after.

The entry fee is $20 in advance, $25 the day of the ride, and students get $5 off with a student ID.

The ride is a fundraiser for the BCO to help fund their bike education programs in local public schools. BCO officials are expecting over 200 cyclists to participate this year.
