ALL WHEELS WELCOME!
This is a FREE event for all ages.
This is the 5th annual Worldwide Rollout Day, and the 3rd year hosted in Arkansas. We are always so excited to showcase the beautiful trail system in Fayetteville.
Founded by our friend @SKATEFANTACEE in 2020, the vision is simple: all wheels, all inclusive, rolling together all over the world. We are just one location among hundreds of cities participating in this worldwide event. Let’s show everyone how Arkansas rolls!

DATE: Sunday July 14, 2024
TIME: Meetup at 6pm- gear up and socialize. Rollout at 7pm!
LOCATION: Lake Fayetteville Trail loop (5.25 miles of smooth, paved surface). Closed course - no streets to cross.
START: Meetup is near the marina at 1330 E Lake Fayetteville Rd. Parking is available there, at Veteran’s park, and the lot south of the Botanical gardens. There are 3 restrooms along the route, 4 water-filling stations, and bike repair stations. Take your time and enjoy the scenery- this is a leisurely roll and not a race! The loop is fairly level and a good for all levels!
WHAT TO BRING: A good attitude, your own set of wheels, safety gear (recommended), and plenty of hydration.
