Jeff and Susan’s Excellent Adventure

This is our trip report for the round trip bicycle ride on the Razorback Greenway in Northwest Arkansas. Saturday April 11. Bags packed and bikes ready to go.   Starting point: Bella Vista, Arkansas.  Here are the trail markers you will see along the way.  Some artwork along the trail near Slaughter Pen mountain bike park.   This is an awesome food truck that we have been meaning to visit more often. It is just off the square in Bentonville, across from Phat Tire bike shop. Our first beer stop was Bike Rack Brewing Co, awesome place and all of their beers are named after bike trails and bike stuff in general. Next door is Pedaler’s Pub. Also a cycling themed establishment.

Here is a neat mural.

  Down the road in Lowell. Second beer stop was at Core Brewing & Distilling Co. A wiener dog is their logo.     Nice view of Lake Fayetteville.   Down the road a bit in Johnson.   Beer stop number 3. Fossil Cove Brewing Co.   Some of their beers are named after dinosaurs.   We got a flight!  Finally made it to Dickson St. 46 miles later, the end of the line, this is our home for the night. Sunday April 12. Day 2. Checking out.

Fuel for the ride!

Cool tunnel along trail from hotel.

Just south of Dickson St.

This is the longest tunnel on the trail.

Cool old trucks along the way.

Which way do I go?

One of the many bridges of the trail.

Cambium. My favorite saddle.

I think she is trying to draft me.

Just below Lake Fayetteville.

Northbound!

Springdale countryside.

Overhang.

That is one ginormous wall.

Rogers, near Pinnacle Hills.

AMP. Arkansas Music Pavilion. We saw The Avett Brothers here and Steve Martin.

Friend of the bike trail.

This is a scenic part of the Bentonville section.

This looks old. My kind of place.

The best crepe place this side of France.

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

You are here!

40 miles later. A bit shorter due to less stops. 85 total miles, a thousand smiles. Until next time!

  1. Hi guys! I loved your mini blog/ tour of the trail! We live in Anna, Tx. but come to Fayetteville as often as we can. We brought our bikes up at the end of July when we were up for the Kenny Chesney concert at the Rogers Amp. We rode from Fayetteville into Springdale. It wasn’t far and we would have gone further, but we had to drive back to North Texas that day. Adding the beer tour is totally up our alley! I can absolutely talk my other half into a weekend ride if there are multiple beer pits! Thanks for posting your adventure. Happy trails!
