The Square 2 Square Bike Ride is a 30-mile fun ride on the Razorback Regional Greenway between Bentonville and Fayetteville. The ride becomes more popular each year and the Greenway allows plenty of space to spread out. The inaugural bike ride in September of 2015 had 723 riders and the recent September 2017 event had 1,800 riders. Event organizers anticipate approximately 2,100 participants for the sixth ride this spring!
The spring ride on May 12th will start next to the Fayetteville Square and end at Lawrence Plaza in Bentonville. The event runs between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm. There will be three pit-stops along the way: Lake Fayetteville, Downtown Springdale, and Mercy Trailhead. The Post-Ride Celebration at Lawrence Plaza will include a local music line-up, sponsored by the Square 2 Square Entertainment Sponsor, Walton Arts Center. The celebration will expand into Compton Garden's Parking Lot with a beer garden sponsored by Fossil Cove Brewing.
Participants must register in advance and will receive a t-shirt, collapsible cup, and finisher medal. Registration for adults (ages 14+) is $35 and for youths (ages 9-13) is $25; children under 8 do not need to register.
