Lake Fayetteville Bicycle Skills Course Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting
The City of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department will celebrate the completion of the Lake Fayetteville Bicycle Skills Course with a grand opening and ribbon cutting on Thursday, April 28 at 5:30 p.m. The skills course is located in North Shore at Lake Fayetteville; the address is 1208 E. Lake Fayetteville Road.
The bicycle skills course consists of an earthen trail tread and a series of ridable arches and ramps designed to challenge and improve control skills for cyclists. Navigation of these features will help a rider develop balance, steering, and pedaling techniques necessary to successfully travel on an obstacle-laden mountain bike trail. The course consists of two separate loops which offer different challenge levels. One loop is designed for very young riders just learning bicycling techniques and the other is designed to be a bit more challenging and also features both log and stone obstacles to master.
This project was developed in concert with the Ozark Off-Road Cyclists (OORC), a local volunteer mountain bike club responsible for developing the natural surface trails at Lake Fayetteville and Kessler Mountain. A long-time collaborator with Fayetteville Parks and Recreation, OORC commissioned Crossland Construction’s Trail Division to perform the work; the project was funded through a grant from the Walton Family Foundation.
