We design and build amazing trails throughout the region. Our trail system is nationally recognized as one of the best places to ride in the country.

MAINTAIN

Poorly maintained trails create safety issues. Our volunteers trim and repair the trails for everyones enjoyment.

EDUCATE

Teaching our children proper riding techniques and trail conservation will ensure a great future for our trail systems.

WHO WE ARE

Gary has a son Grayson Vernon, a daughter Abigail Vernon and is Married to Aimee Vernon.  The Vernon’s are all avid cyclist and help support the trail systems in Bentonville and Bella Vista.

DALE BAILEY

Dale's passion for mountain biking started when Slaughter Pen Hollow trail system opened back in 2007. In just a short time after the trails opened, Dale along with Tim Robinson got together to organize FAST as an effort to give back to the trail system and to give back to the city of Bentonville. Dale not only loves being in the outdoors maintaining and building new trail, he also enjoys teaching beginning bikers the basic skills needed to launch their own passion for mountain biking.

 

CARLIE MOCK

Through years of playing and camping in the woods, I developed my passion for the outdoors. In April 2007 I purchased my first mountain bike, GT Avalanche 3.0, hard tail. The MTB world didn't know what hit 'em! My passion soon turned into obsession with riding my bike. I loved the strength I developed, but mostly I loved seeing nature from a new aspect. I rode as much as possible with any free time I had.

 

GREG POOL

I bought my first mountain bike (Trek 4500) in 2003.  I was living in Houston, had a very stressful job, and had put on a lot of weight. At 260 lbs, unhealthy lifestyle, and a house full of little kids – I knew I had to change something to be the healthy grandpa or even to see them grow up. I started riding to lose weight and found that it was not only a great way to stay fit but I loved the lifestyle and the community rewards.
