What if I told you that you could build a mountain bike park in your city and it would not only have health benefits, but would bring the community together, and attract people to your local job market and boost the economy? Well you can have all of these, but you can’t just snap your fingers and go. It takes hard work by a community of volunteers, buy in from the city and money.
In my opinion cities like Bentonville, Arkansas have become a master class in what can happen when these three efforts come together to progress and build the mountain bike scene. With this movement other cities are taking notes and following some of the lessons learned from Northwest Arkansas.
