Attention Square 2 Square participants: After discussions with the National Weather Service, we are moving the start time for the Square 2 Square Bike Ride to 7:00am. You now have the ability to start anytime between 7:00am-10:00am. Due to weather, riders will not need to stick to the original time that you signed up for.
We encourage those riders that can and would like to start early to do so knowing that there is potential for weather in the area. We will be communicating with our pit stop locations throughout the ride as well as posting updates to social media. We ask that you stay aware of these updates during the event.
In addition, please note that our finish line in Bentonville will close at 2:00pm. This is based on the potential for severe weather moving into the area tomorrow afternoon.
There has been no change in shuttle times. If you signed up for a return shuttle to Fayetteville at 3:00pm or 4:00pm, the shuttle pickup location has moved to the Downtown Activity Center (215 SW A St.) in Bentonville. Our staff at the finish line will be able to assist in directing you to that location.
As always, we encourage participants to use their best judgement when participating in the Square 2 Square Ride. In the event that you do not feel comfortable riding tomorrow, and would like to do a make up ride on your own, we will be more than happy to coordinate a medal for you.
Please stay tuned for any potential updates as weather continues to change.

$25 for adults, $15 for kids (9-13), Free (Under 9) - includes a t-shirt, pint glass, and finisher medal. FEES INCREASE $10 on May 1.
