    2023 Fayetteville Tandem Rally

    See who's coming (updated 9/5/23)

    With world-class riding around every corner, Fayetteville is home to authentic cycling experiences. From road cycling to gravel riding, the surrounding Ozark Mountains create the perfect backdrop for a tandem rally. With over 100 miles of paved and single-track trails accessible from the city center, Fayetteville boasts an extensive trail network featuring a variety of experiences for cyclists of all abilities. From the family-friendly Razorback Greenway to the purpose-built mountain bike trails at Centennial Park, the toughest decision may be deciding what bike to ride. When you are not riding, we hope you will enjoy one of the many bicycle-friendly restaurants, coffee shops, and breweries rich with local flavor. Make Fayetteville your next cycling destination! Our hope is once you arrive in Fayetteville you have little need for your automobile. Click here for more information on Fayetteville.
