I moved to the area in the summer of 2020 so I could ride Mountain bikes and Gravel year round leaving right from my garage. Truly world class riding in this region of the US. I also started road cycling at that same time with the abundance of quiet country roads and varying terrain so we truly have it all in this area. Just today I saw a link to the latest project that's happening for primary road cyclists along with even more gravel and MTB.

I'd love to add you on strava unless you wanna keep it private. Curious about Bentonville routes you take as well as routes from all the travel you're doing (portugal, girona, etc)
May or may not copy all your routes :D

I just requested to follow. If you go back to March you can see my Girona routes, most were based on Tristan's rides.

Is there a group ride scene there? As in 15+ guys/gals who like to go hard, and maybe sprint for a town line sign?

Absolutley. Strong group rides weekly like TNT in Bentonville and Worlds in Fayetteville. We also have a Crit series in Springdale called Natural State and a Circuit race series called Avoca that run April through July. Mix in 3-4 other road races in the area so it's a growing riding and racing scene. MTB and Gravel have far more races and events but the road crowd is thriving well. We are 90 miles from Tulsa which also has Crit races that happen before and after Tulsa Tough.
