Bentonville: Mountain Biking Capital of the World

For many years, Bentonville has been known internationally as the home to Walmart, where Sam Walton first launched his global chain of stores. Recently, Bentonville has been shifting that focus to new areas. When Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art opened in 2011, it put Bentonville on the international map for renowned art and for the museum’s unique design. In recent years, Bentonville is seeing an explosion of interest in mountain biking, which prompted the city to declare itself the “Mountain Biking Capital of the World.”

Biking & Mobility – Shifting Gears in Bentonville

With a People For Bikes office in town and an emphasis on both new business construction downtown and the construction of the new Walmart World Headquarters Campus, Bentonville is reinventing itself or possibly just moving into the next phase of its reinvention. This isn’t about bike friendliness, it’s about a change in how we commute to work, play, shop, and medical care. Bentonville is taking the opportunity that growth brings to become a model mobility city. This is a huge jump from the recent “Mountain Biking Capital of the World” moniker it adopted for itself. Will other Arkansas cities follow suit? Has Little Rock and North Little Rock been at all proactive in using the upheaval of I-30 construction to reinvent downtown mobility? Will Fort Smith adopt bike/pedestrian projects in the city and region? Will Jonesboro continue to hang its hat on sprawl?
