The City of Bentonville has more than 40 miles of bike trails within city limits, 20 of which are natural-surface. What sets it apart is that the majority of Bentonville’s singletrack trails link directly to its urban trail system, allowing mountain bikers easy access to the city’s amenities, including bike stations with air pumps and repair tools, shower facilities and Wi-Fi “check-in” spots. Additionally, the Bentonville Convention and Visitors Bureau has designated bicycle tourism as a priority and works in partnership with Friends of Arkansas Singletrack (FAST) to offer multiple race, ride and skills clinic events throughout the year.
