It’s that time again. Time to saddle up your old bicycle and ride about 30 miles up the Razorback Greenway from the Fayetteville Square to the Bentonville Square.

The spring version of the annual Square to Square ride is set for Saturday, May 7.

The ride this time begins in Fayetteville, and riders will depart between 7 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. from Walker Park in Fayetteville. From there, riders will make their way up the Greenway to Bentonville where festivities will be held at the finish line.

In addition to the in-person ride, a virtual option will also be offered anytime in May, which is National Bike Month. Those who opt for this option can ride the 30 mile northbound course along the Razorback Greenway any time during the month of May. A 15 mile option for the virtual ride is also availabe.

Participants must register in advance and will receive a goody bag with a synthetic t-shirt and a finisher medal. Adults (ages 14+) can register for $35, while youth (ages 13 and under) can register for $20. A family of 3-5 household members can register for $85.

During the spring registration period, fall ride registration is also available. The fall Square to Square bike ride will take place on Saturday, Oct. 8, with a virtual ride option offered during the month of October.
