The League of American Bicyclists is a non-profit membership organization that promotes cycling for fun, fitness, and transportation through advocacy and education. The League of American Bicyclists recognizes businesses that encourage a more welcoming atmosphere for bicycling employees, customers, and the community. The City of Fayetteville recognizes the following businesses for earning a Bicycle Friendly Business designation in 2015 from the League of American Bicyclists:
