2015 Cardiac Classic Bike Ride @ Burns Park Soccer Fields | North Little Rock | Arkansas | United States

We are shifting into high gear for Cardiac Classic 2015.   We are pleased to announce that biking legend Lance Armstrong will be joining us for a special event on Friday evening, April 24th and then will ride with us on Saturday, April 25th.

In addition to the great news about Lance Armstrong being a part of our Cardiac Classic event, we are excited to introduce you to our new presenting sponsor: the Arkansas Heart Foundation.  Hospital also will continue its support of the Cardiac Classic.

Once again, we will be hosting the ride in tandem with the American Heart Association Central Arkansas Heart Walk.  Heart disease remains the number one killer of men and women in the United States.  It is the number one killer of Arkansans.   Arkansans rank 17th in the nation with regard to incidents of cardiovascular disease.  There is no doubt that physical fitness greatly minimizes our risk of Heart Disease.  So a WALK and a RIDE are a perfect way to spend a Saturday supporting the efforts of the Arkansas Heart Foundation and the American Heart Association to move us into a healthier population and raise the awareness of the impact of cardiovascular disease in Arkansas.

This is a great opportunity for you and your family to come out and enjoy two great events together.  If you ride, but your family does not, bring them along to walk.  There will be food, fun activities, music and great information on heart disease.

On  Friday night we will be hosting an “Evening with Lance Armstrong” at Noah Event Center.   You  will have an opportunity to meet Lance, hear him speak and have your photo made with him.  This will be a great time to mix-n-mingle with other riders and clubs. It is a “Carb Party” with some fun carb loading treats that will get us revved up and ready for a great ride on Saturday. This will be a separate ticketed event.

The Cardiac Classic ride will begin on Saturday at Burns Park as in our past events.  We will head out towards Big Dam Bridge, Two Rivers Park and on through Roland up to Wye Mountain and then circling back the same route to finish up where we began in Burns Park. In addition to a great route to ride, we will have an awesome swag bag, a chef prepared meal after the ride and better than ever, fun route rest stops.

We will have three route choices.  20 mile, 50 mile and 100K (63 miles).

Registration includes a Heart Walk T-shirt and a few other ride items.   There will be no late fee for registration price this year.  However, if you register after April 1st we cannot guarantee that you will receive an event t-shirt.
