Square 2 Square Bicycle Ride

Fall S2S 0420

Virtual Square 2 Square Bike Ride


Due to the current COVID-19 situation in Northwest Arkansas, 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 and Fayetteville have organized a Square 2 Square Virtual Ride! With the goals of providing an event for new people on 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 19 - November 1, 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!
When: September 19 - November 1, 2020
Where: Razorback Regional Greenway
Who: Anyone who likes to bike, support the local cycling scene, and burn calories!
What: A cycling celebration of our downtown squares and the unique amenity we are fortunate to have in Northwest Arkansas!
