The spring edition of the biannual Square 2 Square Bike Ride is taking off up the Razorback Regional Greenway from the Fayetteville Downtown Square on Saturday, May 7, 2022.

Now in its seventh year, this increasingly popular collaborative event between the Fayetteville Parks Department and Bentonville Parks and Recreation takes place each Spring and Fall. The Square 2 Square Bike Ride - as its name implies - is not a race, but an easygoing event that’s designed for all ages and abilities. The intention of the S2S Ride, the “Official Ride of the Razorback Greenway”, is to provide an event for folks that are new to riding bikes while promoting safe riding and showcasing the Razorback Greenway.

Departing via the Razorback Greenway from Walker Park in Fayetteville and finishing at the Downtown Activity Center in Bentonville, the in-person ride will roll along the Razorback Greenway for 30 miles. For riders, it’s a fun opportunity to get outside while celebrating Northwest Arkansas’ downtown squares and enjoying the unique cycling amenities of the area that make Fayetteville such a fantastic place to live, work, visit, and play!

Just as in 2021, a virtual ride option for 2022 is being offered during the month of May, National Bike Month, in addition to the in-person event on May 7. The virtual ride will take place May 1-31, when the weather is at its best for cycling the Razorback Greenway! Beyond the standard 30 mile northbound course along the Razorback Greenway, the virtual ride will feature a 15 mile option. Riders are welcome to start at any point along the trail if not able to ride the entire 30 miles.

Participants must register in advance and will receive a goody bag complete with a synthetic T-shirt and finisher medal. Adults (ages 14+) can register for $35; youth (13 and under) can register for $20. A family of 3-5 household members can register for $85. During the spring registration period, fall ride registration also is available! The fall Square 2 Square Bike Ride will take place Oct. 8 with a virtual ride option offered during the month of October.

Registration for both spring and fall rides is now open! For more information on the Square 2 Square Bike Ride, please visit the event webpage, www.GoPlayFay.com/square2square, or find the event on Facebook. Registration can be found online at www.regwiz.io.
