READY TO RIDE?
For cyclists looking for a challenge, the steep and winding roads in the Ozark Mountains make this area some of the best terrain in the country for riding. Fayetteville is the highest rated Bicycle Friendly Community in the state. The city’s mountain biking trails are handmade by local experts. Fayetteville is one of only 37 certified IMBA Ride Centers in the world. Kessler Mountain and Centennial Park, both located minutes from downtown, feature miles of technical, rocky singletrack in old-growth forest. In 2022, Fayetteville will host the UCI Cyclocross World Championships at Centennial Park, only the second time the event has been held in America. If you want to get a full Fayetteville experience on two wheels, the Razorback Regional Greenway is your best friend. This paved, 40-mile shared-use trail starts at Kessler Mountain Regional Park, “mile zero” for the Greenway, just south of downtown Fayetteville, and runs through Northwest Arkansas. In Fayetteville, it weaves near restaurants, historic sites, breweries, shops and more.
