The Bentonville Bike Fest is created by a Belgian duo Kenny Belaey and Fien Lammertyn. “If you like mountain biking, a relaxed atmosphere, great food and awesome people, Bentonville truly is heaven on earth. We immediately fell in love with this place,” enthuses Lammertyn, who’s an avid mountain biker and experienced event organizer. Kenny Belaey is a multiple trial bike world champion and professional mountain biker who travels the world for his sport and has made a name for himself in the NBA with his spectacular halftime shows.
The Bentonville Bike Fest was developed out of the success of Women Shred hosted in May 2019 as the first-ever event fusing a bike festival aimed at women with its roots firmly planted in the world-famous OZ Trails and in cooperation with the Bentonville Film Festival Northwest Arkansas.
Following the success of the inaugural event, this year’s event has expanded to the Bentonville Bike Fest and will be held May 1-3. It will once again coincide with the Bentonville Film Festival.
