Bentonville Wants Bikers

2 03 2021

With work and home life so topsy-turvy these days, some cities and states (in the U.S.) are offering incentives to encourage folks who are working remotely to pick up stakes and move to their neck of the woods.

While there’s more than a handful of places offering relocation incentives, Northwest Arkansas might have the best offer on record at the moment….especially if you are a bicycling enthusiast.

Northwest Arkansas will give you $10,000 to move, plus throw in a bike (MTB or “Street”) to sweeten the deal! Northwest Arkansas has 162 miles of paved trails, the 37-mile Razorback Regional Greenway and the 322 miles of world-class mountain biking trails.

The city of Bentonville also has the The Railyard bike park which looks amazing!

Barry Nobles posted a video of him shredding the park recently and if that video is any indication of the caliber of biking parks and infrastructure in Arkansas then this offer seems extremely compelling.

Another notable to shred the park is none other than Mike “Hucker” Clark (See below).

Northwest Arkansas has put together quite the offer…I’m getting the feeling this could become quite the hotspot in the near future!
