BENTONVILLE, Arkansas - Bike School Bentonville is a "ski school" for mountain biking coming to Bentonville in the spring of 2022. Every ski town has a school that offers education and skills development for locals and visitors alike. The continuously growing trail system throughout Northwest Arkansas has sparked an increased interest in mountain biking locally, and attracted visitors from all over the globe. These factors make Bentonville a prime location for a comprehensive school tailored to meet the needs of all who ride the trails.

We have assembled a team with a broad range of experience that makes us uniquely qualified to bring a program that is both high quality and distinctly Bentonville. The extensive trail network in the Ozarks is world class! As a professional mountain biker for the past three decades, I've had the opportunity to travel the globe racing and the trails in Northwest Arkansas have quickly become renowned as the new go-to for MTB. Cycling has become center stage and we now host multiple National Races, World Cups, and World Championships on the trails near Bentonville-Nat Ross (MTB Hall of Fame).

Bike School Bentonville is now accepting applications to build a comprehensive team of coaches and participants in preparation for the launch of the first two initial programs in April:

The Bike Academy is tailored to serve youth who are interested in expanding their talents beyond what the current junior high and high school programs offer. Participants must be at least 13 years old as travel is a component.
Trail Kids is a program created for kids ages 7-13, to build technical skills while having fun riding the trails together.

Those interested in participating in The Bike Academy or in becoming a coach in the Trail Kids program should visit to apply. Applications open November 1st.

Bike School Bentonville provides progressive bike skills and continuing coach education. We are committed to the long-term, comprehensive development of riders. With transformative and elite coaching experiences our athletes are empowered to reach their full potential, both on and off the bike. We are located where the world comes to learn, coach, and train in the sport of cycling.
