To see why gravel riding is exploding in Northwest Arkansas, OZ Cycling Tours guides regularly ride and compete on gravel and are ready to show you what you’re missing.
OZ Cycling Tours keeps customer service top of mind. When booking a tour with them, you’ll get the whole package with concierge service. Coming in from out of town and concerned about transporting your rental bike? Don’t fret. Your guide(s) can pick up your rental bike, pick you up and drive you to your tour location, provide water/snacks, and will have extra parts and tools in case something goes awry. In addition to knowing what trails and routes are best for your needs, your guides will also be able to show you local hidden gems.
OZ Cycling Tours supports rides like the Greater Bentonville Are Chamber of Commerce weekly Friday rides, shakeout rides for large events like Rule of 3 and Bentonville Bike Fest, and partners with PeopleForBikes NWA to host a monthly beginner-friendly gravel ride. They’re also heavily involved with the Siloam Shuffle, which is the finale to the Arkansas Gravel Series.
You’ll also find OZ Cycling Tours giving back to the community by running aid stations at local events such as the Rule of 3, Hazel Valley Rally, OZ Trails Town Series presented by Bentonville Bike School, and more.
