On Saturday, September 7, fall Square 2 Square bikers will take off from downtown Bentonville’s Lawrence Plaza between 8 and 10 a.m. to make a one-way trip to beautiful historic downtown Fayetteville. The focus of the day is 100% fun and participants are encouraged to ride at their own pace. For those who wish to join, but have concerns about making the entire distance, riders are welcome to start their trip at any point along the Razorback Greenway.
A collaboration between the Fayetteville and Bentonville Parks & Recreation departments and Bike Bentonville, organizers from both communities work with local businesses, organizations and volunteers to coordinate festive stops along the course. Live entertainment, bike maintenance services and even refreshments help to break up the ride and offer a chance to rest and re-energize. Once bikers reach the Fayetteville end of the course, they’ll find a post-ride celebration from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Wondering how to get back to the starting point without riding thirty more miles? Optional return shuttles run on a schedule throughout the day and are available by reservation for just $5 per person. Additional private shuttle resources are available as well by making advance arrangements.
Online registration is $25 per person until August 20, then the price increases to $35 through the cutoff date of September 5. Participants will be able to pick up ride packets in advance in both Fayetteville and Bentonville to receive their event t-shirt, water bottle and required wristband. Finisher medals will be distributed at the end of the ride.
