Mountain biking in Fayetteville


Visit for the scenery, stay for the adventure!

Fayetteville was initially designated as a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists in 2010. In 2016, the city was the first community in Arkansas to be awarded Silver status. And by 2018, just two years later, Fayettville has made its way to also become a bronze-level IMBA Ride Center and mountain biking destination.

This is a destination going from strength to strength in its provision for active transport, recreation, mountain biking and bicycle tourism experiences - for locals and visitors. This is one place you won't be disappointed. Well, maybe only when it comes time to leave again. 

The city, of course, is more than proud of its achievements, and you will feel more than welcome in visiting the region to share their joy. Hop on your bike and explore the mountain biking trails, then come back to enjoy this beautiful and bicycle-friendly city.
