"Amazing does not do this event justice. Ash and her team are phenomenal in their attention to detail, whether it's a delicious group dinner or making sure everyone gets help with their bikes. I love the support in choosing my level of fun and adventure, and the opportunity to make new like-minded friends."" - Penny, Spokane, WA
WELCOME TO BENTONVILLE
Ride the foothills of the Ozark mountains, a canopy of pine trees above you, and miles upon miles of rolling purpose-built mountain bike trails under tire.
Join us for a 3 day/2 night weekend of lady shred, gourmet food, free Specialized demo bikes, and SRAM supported technical clinics taught by professional female mechanics.
Stretching from northwest and central Arkansas into Missouri, the Ozark Mountains are an ancient range, once surrounded by sea and now well worn by time. Verdant mountains give way to misty fields and hard-dirt farms, while dramatic karst formations line sparkling lakes, rivers and capillary-thin back roads.
The Ozark Mountains are on of the most diverse places on earth, Bentonville trail builders have taken full-advantage of this isolated wonderland of rugged woodlands, limestone bluffs, and pristine waters. With over 200 connected miles of trail - all stemming from the charming city center of Bentonville, Arkansas has quickly and pronouncedly been put on the map of world-class riding destinations.

DAY ONE - WELCOME TO THE OZARKS!
Our retreat will kick off with an afternoon ride from the heart of beautiful Downtown Bentonville. Less than a quarter mile from city center, you quickly experience the rolling singletrack that has earned this area the status of an IMBA Ride Center. This large-scale bike epicenter has a little somethin' somethin' for every rider, from a variety of riding experiences to beautiful and memorable experiences off the bike.
Post ride you have one thing to look forward to - our famous #fourfootcheesboard paired with a curated cooler of Sierra Nevada brews & (optional) female-led tech clinic.
DAY TWO - ROCK, DROP, & ROLL
On day two we'll head over to Coler Mountain Bike Preserve for an all-day shred session. The trails feature multiple flowy jump lines and challenging technical rocky sections that culminate at "The Hub" near the top of the mountain. From there you can choose which trail to take and the level of difficulty. Cruise down on an easy-going route, head out on a cross-country adventure, or go full-send on any of the wildly fun advanced trails featuring hoot-inducing jumps, bumps, and burms.
You might not be hungry after our hearty trailside lunch, but be prepared for Taco Tuesday on Saturday - our signature fiesta night and campfire kumbaya.
DAY THREE - OZARK VISTAS & GOODBYES
We'll finish out the weekend with a beautiful breakfast followed by a smorgasbord of ride options in the famous Back 40 trails. Charger pace for those who still have gas in the tank, and more mellow shreds for us normal humans.
We'll conclude our Bentonville epic with genuine bear hugs, and plans for future weekends of shred!
We've put together a few ride details that represent a typical Roam Retreat. Please keep in mind that these are not exact figures, but rather a general idea of what you can expect on a given trip.

We categorize our rides into three different groups based primarily on pace, technical difficulty, and distance/elevation. When you arrive at a retreat, choose your own group and your own adventure!
