SQUARE 2 SQUARE 

It’s the perfect time of year to hit the trail on your bicycle.

The official Square 2 Square Bike Ride takes place twice annually, once in the fall and once in the spring. The fall ride travels along the Razorback Greenway from Bentonville to Fayetteville. The ride takes place this Saturday, Oct. 8.

Organizers are also holding a virtual race if you want to “roll on your own.” You can complete the virtual ride anytime before the end of the month.

There are different price points for individuals, kids, and families. You can sign up through the link on our website.
