Cycling Starts Small

City of Bentonville

Northwest Arkansas is known for its mountain biking trails and cycling culture, and the region has the resources to instill that culture from a young age.

  • According to a recent report by CBC Kids, the Bentonville Bicycle Playground was recognized as one of the best kid-friendly bike parks worldwide. The playground, designed in Nov. 2016, includes bridges, tunnels, and a pump track.
  • City of cycling: The park is joined by two other parks, one in Rogers and another in Springdale, and is on a mission to get kids on their bikes as soon as possible.
