Outside’s 2020 bike test took place in October on the roads and trails of northwest Arkansas. For those unfamiliar with the region, it is quickly making a name for itself as a biking paradise, thanks to a variety of destinations and rapidly expanding trail development. With so much terrain to choose from, we sampled singletrack in Bentonville, Bella Vista, Rogers, Eureka Springs, Springdale, and Hot Springs, as well as many miles of winding country roads outside Fayetteville. In addition to trails, we also pedaled dirt roads surrounding Bentonville. There is something for everyone in this corner of the state, whether you’re a road rider, mountain biker, or gravel grinder.
