Bicycling in Fayetteville

The City of Fayetteville is on a mission to become even more bike-friendly.  With our expansive trail network, on-street infrastructure, and cycling initiatives, citizens of Fayetteville will continually find it more simple to use bicycles both for recreation and transportation.  

Fayetteville and the University of Arkansas have partnered with VeoRide, Inc. to bring the region's first bike share program to Fayetteville. The program will launch in September 2018 with 290 standard 7-speed bicycles and 50 "e-bikes." VeoRide is currently working on a website for the Fayetteville program. Check out VeoRide's proposal (PDF) to learn more or read the August 8 media release here. You can also review the the complete City Council item (PDF) with the VeoRide contract and proposal.

The City of Fayetteville takes great pride in being a part of a Bicycle Friendly Community. Fayetteville was first designated by the League of American Bicyclists as a bronze Bicycle Friendly Community in 2010. In 2016 Fayetteville became the first community in Arkansas to be designated silver.

The most visible evidence of a great place for bicycling is infrastructure; the physical environment is a key determinant in whether people will get on a bike and ride. The City of Fayetteville has built an extensive network of cycling infrastructure including shared-use paved trails, bike lanes, bike parking racks, and natural surface trails.
