Fayetteville is a haven for competitive cycling and mountain biking, and casual bike rides around the city are one of the most popular things to do. Cycling is a great way to experience everything the city has to offer — restaurants, shopping, nightlife — while still enjoying the beautiful outdoors Northwest Arkansas and the Ozarks are known for.
One local cycling team, the Fayetteville Wheelmen, hosts many local group rides and represent our city by racing and riding all over the world, sporting their Experience Fayetteville jerseys. We recently caught up with the team to see what they think makes Fayetteville such a perfect place to cycle every day.

People visit and stay in Fayetteville for a lot of reasons, from shows on Dickson Street to Razorbacks games to weekend getaways with friends and family. One of the most popular things to do in Fayetteville is enjoying the outdoors, since Fayetteville has so many offerings for those wanting to play outside and get in touch with nature.
