Bentonville, Arkansas!  

If you didn't know, Bentonville is a mountain bike town! Come see why Bentonville is being written about in every bike publication. Amazing trails, beautiful downtown, and now an Outerbike event!  

Western Spirit Cycling has partnered with Visit Bentonville and OZ Trails to provide a third location for Outerbike in 2018. After we attended the IMBA Summit there last November we knew we had to bring Outerbike to Northwest Arkansas! From the fresh air of the Ozarks to the multiple trail hubs and bike parks, the area has everything we could ask for.

We’re also proud to partner with the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) on this event to help them celebrate 30 years of mountain bike education and advocacy. Your registration includes attendance at IMBA’s Dirty 30 anniversary party on Saturday night, and the full demo and BYOB tickets include IMBA’s special group rides. More details to come, but expect great local brews and food, live entertainment and special awards for special people. Here’s to the next three decades of more great places to ride close to home!
