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.
