Alright we’re back for another awesome day of riding here in Bentonville, AR (aren’t you guys proud I got it right this time? Honestly my biggest take away was realizing some of you READ THE DESCRIPTION!! Which is really awesome! Cheers to you).

Today we are heading out to the Blowing Springs Loop Trail, which was just a short ride straight from where we were staying – can you believe that?

I really enjoyed this trail as it reminded me a lot of riding in North Carolina during the fall. It sure is beautiful out there! It was more of a XC type of trail, but the builders did a great job of keeping things interesting by using the natural rock formations in the design.

Although the trail wasn’t too technical, Seth still opted to ride with both a front brake AND dropper post, despite his prior claims, and it turned out to be a good decision as we did come upon a few fun techy sections such as the ledge and stair spot at the beginning and the rocky drop into tight turn near the end.

Although this trail doesn’t have the flow and jumps that some other options in town do, I still thought it was tons of fun and provided a good mileage and variation. Not to mention if you wanted to work on your skills after the ride, there is a pump track and small free ride area right next to it… Bentonville knows what’s up!

Hope everyone is having an awesome week thus far as many places brace for Winter… but don’t let that stop you from living free, riding hard, and staying stoked!

Cheers friends,

Alexander
