We want to bring together all road, trail, and sidewalk users around the state to make an impact on Arkansas.

Founded in 2012, our goal is to lead efforts to create a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly state.  Both cyclists and pedestrians share common problems such as the increasing threat from distracted drivers and a lack of safe infrastructure throughout the state. Bike/Walk Arkansas wants to mitigate these problems through seeking investment by the state in a balanced transportation system. 

Goals of the state coalition include building a coalition of organizations, leading the efforts for passage of the majority of bike and pedestrian legislation around the state, providing resources for bicycle safety education, developing more inclusive communities for cycling and walking, promoting bike tourism and travel, and seeking to make bicycling accessible to everyone.  Read more...

Help bring the U.S. Bicycle Route System to Arkansas

The U.S. Bicycle Route System is a national network of bicycle routes under development that will link urban and rural areas of the United States.  This network accommodates cyclists using a variety of different types of cycling facilities. 

Three corridors have been prioritized through Arkansas and are shown on the current National Corridor Plan as USBRS 51, 80, and 84. The proposed USBRS 51 would potentially connect those traveling north-south with the established USBRS 76 in Missouri.  The Missouri route, USBRS 76 is one of less than a dozen established national routes approved by AASHTO. Two east-west routes are also proposed (USBRS 80 & 84) running east-west through Arkansas connecting Oklahoma to Tennessee and Mississippi to Texas.  Read more...
