The Fall Square to Square bike ride will still happen this year, just a little later than originally planned.

Fayetteville Parks & Rec officials announced that the event, originally set for last weekend, will now take place on Saturday, Oct. 16.

Officials made the decision to postpone the ride last weekend due to some dangerous storms and lightning in the forecast. Those same storms also effected the schedule for the Fresh Grass music festival held that same day in Bentonville.

The ride this time will begin in Bentonville and will end on the Fayetteville square. Shuttle service will not be available for the rescheduled ride, however.

In addition to the in-person ride on Oct. 16, a virtual option is also available, and riders can complete the ride on their own time any time during the month of October and still receive a medal.

Registration options include a solo ride, kids rides, and “family packs.”
