Square 2 Square Bike Ride


Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the fall Square 2 Square Bike Ride will be rolling into a virtual format. Our team will miss hosting the full Square 2 Square "day of ride" experience that participants love along the Razorback Greenway. However, as an alternative, the Parks & Recreation Departments of Bentonville & Fayetteville have organized the Square 2 Square Virtual Ride! With the goals of providing an event for people new to bikes, promoting safe riding, showcasing the Razorback Greenway, and supporting our neighbors, S2S has a few NEW options this fall! 

Event Information

The virtual ride will take place September 19th-November 1st, when fall weather is at its best for cycling! In addition to the traditional 30 mile course along the Razorback Greenway from Bentonville's Square to Fayetteville's Square, the virtual ride will feature a 15 mile option. Suggested route maps will make your ride planning easy, whether it be starting in the north or in the south, riding point to point or round trip. Our S2S vision is to enable you to enjoy the 15 or 30 mile journey on the Razorback Greenway on your own, following physical distancing guidelines, carrying hand sanitizer, and keeping safety a priority! 

Participant packets will be available at the conclusion of the program, during the week of November 2nd. Finisher medals will be available to pick up from various locations throughout the duration of the virtual ride.
