20 mile Road
The 20-Mile route offers riders a relaxing route that takes them along a flat-ish course to rest stop 1 which is 10 miles in and located next to the White River. This route is perfect for beginners and anyone wanting an amazing day on the bike!
32 mile Road
The 32-Mile route takes riders to the peaceful Brentwood rest stop with open park area and White River overlooks. This route offers beautiful scenery and mostly flat terrain.
71 mile Road
The 71-Mile route offers riders Mt. Gaylor. An epic climb offering equally epic views overlooking some of the most amazing scenery NWA has to offer. This route will not disappoint. Rest stop 3 is located at the bottom of Mt. Gaylor.
25 mile Gravel
The 24 mile option features the classic “Tilly Willy” gravel sector south of town alongside the White River. Gentle rollers, wide road, hardpack with scattered potholes, and plentiful tree coverage from the sun.
52 mile Gravel
After riding the classic “Tilly Willy” gravel sector south of town along the White River and passing the first Aid Station in West Fork, this route incorporates a few major gravel climbs and descents leading to the second Aid Station in Brentwood. From here a significant paved climb connects to more gravel and a cool paved section over I-49 before heading back north on gravel on the westside before ultimately reconnecting to the route via 71 and Tilly Willy.
