Designed with spectators in mind, the freshly finished courses at Centennial Park are a must see for any cycling fan! Spectators can expect to have a good time.

The event is being hosted by OZ Trails™ in partnership with Experience Fayetteville, the city’s convention and visitors bureau. The park has gone through extensive remodeling in recent months, including a newly constructed parking lot that can be accessed on Centennial Park Lane off of Old Farmington Road — just west of Interstate 49 and north of MLK Jr. Boulevard.
