Bike World is going to Bentonville!! We invite you to join us for the debut of our new cycling vacation to Bentonville, Arkansas from October 12th - 15th, 2023. Whether you're looking for an epic off-road adventure or a leisurely autumn ride on the 36 mile Razorback Regional Greenway with other cyclists, we've got you covered. Ride as much or as little as you want, it's up to you!
The area around Bentonville has something for riders of all levels, from beginners to seasoned cyclists. The focus is on the experience, and we’re here to make it a great one!
THURSDAY (Oct 12th)
Bright and early, we'll board a comfy chartered bus (departing from our West Des Moines shop) that will deliver us to Bentonville, Arkansas where we'll settle in at the Bike Inn. Then it’s time to explore. You can hit the town or the trails, maybe both.
SATURDAY and SATURDAY
For those looking to ride paved trails, the 36 mile Razorback Regional Greenway is your gateway to a number of local towns. Be sure to bring a water bottle and helmet, then set off on the picturesque trail in any direction you desire.
Want to ride some epic singletrack? You're in luck! Bentonville has been called "MOUNTAIN BIKING CAPITAL OF THE WORLD." From pitchy climbs and bumpy descents to jumps and tricks on breakaway singletrack, the trails of Northwest Arkansas offer thrilling, challenging rides. Streams carve through the sinewy terrain and lakes with rugged rock banks add awesome scenery along the ride.
In-between your rides, be sure to check out the various charming shops and stores that Bentonville has to offer. We highly recommend visiting the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. It is truly an amazing experience.
SUNDAY (Oct 15th)
We’ll be departing in the morning and get back home early in the evening.
WHAT IS THE "RAZORBACK REGIONAL GREENWAY"?
This wonderful paved bike trail spans a large portion of Northwest Arkansas, connecting the bustling hubs of Bentonville and Fayetteville with the growing suburban communities of Rogers, Springdale and Lowell in-between.
At 36 miles long, the trail runs through the downtown districts of Fayetteville, Bentonville and Springdale, providing direct access to various civic, entertainment and retail destinations. Other highlights along the trail's route include the University of Arkansas and Northwest Arkansas Mall in Fayetteville, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, and both Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas and Pinnacle Hills Promenade in Rogers.
Scenic Lake Fayetteville, Lake Springdale and Lake Bella Vista provide additional opportunities for recreation along the way, as do the countless parks and several other trails linked by the system.
