FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Fayetteville Parks Department, along with Bentonville Parks and Recreation, are excited to announce registration for the spring Square 2 Square Bike Ride is now open.
The biannual event is held both in the spring and fall. The spring ride is a 30-mile trip that travels from Fayetteville to Bentonville via the Razorback Regional Greenway. The leisure- or tour-style ride is great for all ages and abilities. The in-person spring ride will take place Saturday, May 7.
In addition to an in-person event, a virtual ride option will be offered during the month of May, National Bike Month. The virtual ride offers the opportunity for participants to complete a 15-mile or 30-mile ride between May 1 and May 31.
This will be the seventh year of the Square 2 Square Bike Ride, which continues to grow in popularity. Event organizers aim to continue serving novice and veteran riders alike through in-person and virtual offerings in 2022. The goal of the event, the “Official Ride of the Razorback Greenway,” is to showcase the local communities and offerings connected by and to the premier trail system that makes Northwest Arkansas a great place to live, work and play.
Participants must register in advance and will receive a goody bag complete with a synthetic T-shirt and finisher medal. Adults (ages 14+) can register for $35; youth (13 and under) can register for $20. A family of 3-5 household members can register for $85.
