WHERE TO STAY IN AND AROUND BENTONVILLE

There are plenty of lodging options to be found in and around Bentonville via AirBnB and VRBO and other vacation rental management companies. There are also several hotel options as well. We look to have lodging discounts made available to participants no later than February 15, 2023.

GETTING TO BENTONVILLE

Bentonville is in the Northwest region of Arkansas, commonly referred to as NWA. The closest airport is in Fayetteville (code XNA) which is a 35-minute drive to downtown Bentonville. Tulsa, OK and Springfield, MO are each 2-hour drives to/from Bentonville and may offer better flight options and pricing.

TRANSPORTATION WHILE STAYING IN BENTONVILLE

It is highly recommended to rent a SUV, Truck, or a vehicle that will allow you to safely transport your mountain bike to and from the trailhead.

BIKE RENTALS & DEMOS

There are several quality bike shops in and around Bentonville that have rental bikes and can provide service. Gearhead Experience Center, Phat Tire, and Mojo Cycling are a few of the top providers and we are continuing to work on a rental discount for event participants. More information will be forthcoming soon. Details will be provided to registered event participants.
