Pedaler's Pub

Pedaler's Pub Logo

The Pedaler's Pub is proud to become part of the Bentonville / Northwest Arkansas community, serving hand made, old world, wood fired craft pizzas, salads, sandwiches, an all day dinner menu, and an ever changing specials menu. Wood fired cooking has been around since the beginning of time, and gives our pizzas a unique flavor that we think you'll love. If you've never tried a wood fired pizza, you need to come see us and taste the difference for yourself, and watch as your pizza chef prepares and cooks your pizza in old world style. Thin crust wood fired Pizza is not the only thing The Pedaler's Pub has to offer. Come enjoy our full service bar and sit out on the front or back patio and enjoy the outdoors while dining with us.

Visit Bentonville

Visit Bentonville

Welcome to Bentonville - Our towns are the heart of America. Some say that they’re gone, moved on, or simply faded away. But there’s a new American town on the map. It’s a town with a big heart and even bigger ambition. A town where modern progress meets rich history, where the arts meet innovation, and where companies meet communities. A town you can explore with all of your senses: from fresh air in the Ozarks, to fresh cuisine on your plate. That town is Bentonville, Arkansas. A town to visit, to see, to breathe, and to discover: “Now this is a great town.” Visit Bentonville — a new American town.

Cannondale Bikes

Cannondale is widely regarded as the bike industry's leading innovator with game-changing technologies, Cannondale and its handcrafted bicycles continue to be recognized by organizations from both inside and outside the industry.

Many of the ideas that keep Cannondale products on the cutting edge come from the sponsored athletes on the company's professional racing teams. The feedback provided by the company's riders, combined with Cannondale's best-in-class production processes, fuel a near constant stream of both new innovations and improvements to existing products.

With a laser focus on a rider-first mentality, we push our employees, our dealers and the bike industry. These refinements aren't limited to the company's competitive road racing and mountain bikes, however; the insights gained through racing, coupled with Cannondale's quest for constant improvement, have also benefited the company's wide array of lightweight recreational bikes as well as its lines of state-of-the-art cycling apparel and parts & accessories.

Lauf Cycling

Lauf Cycling

From Forks to Bikes: Having spent the last few years studying gravel bikes and gravel riding, in a way, the Lauf True Grit gravel bike is something that “just happened”. In the beginning, it was a question of “How our Lauf forks could best complement gravel bikes?”. That question soon developed into “What are the optimal parameters for our forks and gravel bikes to work together?”. Which then eventually became “What would be the ultimate gravel bike?”. In the end, we simply couldn't resist making the gravel bike of our dreams.

We love what we do at work, and we love that our customers love it too!
