Supporting the Big Dam Bridge 100 Cycling Tour

While some Garver employees were pumping the pedals in last weekend's Big Dam Bridge 100 Cycling Tour in central Arkansas, other employees showed their support by volunteering at a rest stop for weary bikers. This past Saturday, Garver pitched a tent in our North Little Rock office's parking lot, and our employees turned out from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. to hand out food, drinks, and encouraging words to cyclists tackling rides ranging from 16 to 100 miles.

Garver, which was recently named a leading bicycle-friendly business, supported the event in other ways. For the second consecutive year, Garver sponsored and designed the Big Dam Bridge 100 bicycle jersey. In addition, Garver Transportation Director Bert Parker serves on the Big Dam Bridge Foundation board of directors, which promote the use, support, and preservation of the Big Dam Bridge for the advancement of health, fitness, cultural, and recreational activities in Arkansas.

Nearly 2,000 cyclists turned out for the race, which is one of Arkansas' largest bicycling events.
