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!

Saturdays Event: GPP GROWLER GRINDER will be bringing our love for gravel to Bentonville for the third year. We are so excited about this event to share our passion for gravel with you. Blanketing the colorful hills of the Ozarks in Northwest Arkansas are hundreds of miles of unpaved and gravel farm roads that feature little to no motor traffic. Scattered about the rolling hills of the area, the course offers great views of the Ozarks throughout Benton and Washington county along with crossing over into surrounding states. The course also features an assortment of civil-war era buildings, barns, and houses from the late 1800’s. Expect average temperatures to be in the mid 50’s by race start and up into the mid 70’s by the midday peak. Gravel sections are well packed, smooth and fast with some wash board wash out portions. The course will be different this year. There will be a 6.5 mile lead out of town to the gravel. 100k and 100-mile courses will be marked, and cue sheets will be provided. We strongly suggest downloading the maps, we will have staff available to help you do it if needed.
