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 one of our newest Outerbike venues! 

In 2018 Western Spirit Cycling partnered with Visit Bentonville and OZ Trails to provide our first venue east of the Rockies. After that inaugural event we’re 100% convinced that it needs to be yearly thing. From the fresh air of the Ozarks to the multiple trail hubs and bike parks, the area has everything we could ask for. The late fall date has some of the nicest riding conditions and a great way to cap off the season.
