If you’re coming to Northwest Arkansas to ride bikes, having a tour guide is an invaluable way to maximize your time. Navigating the hundreds of miles of off-road trails can be daunting, but your tour guide will make sure your trip goes off without a hitch. Started by siblings Adam and Ryan West, OZ Cycling Tours offers full- or half-day mountain bike (downhill and cross country), greenway, and gravel bike tours throughout Northwest Arkansas. The West brothers (born and raised in Bentonville), along with business partner Nathan Paige, share their trail knowledge with customers while providing a thoughtful concierge experience.
