Natural State Criterium Series

Who puts on the Natural State Criterium Series?

The Natural State Criterium Series would not be possible without volunteers and the generous support of our sponsors.  The vast majority of the work involved is undertaken by a volunteer race committee with paid staff support from BikeNWA.

We need volunteers!

It’s never to early to lend a hand, so click here to get involved with the 2017 event!

Why put on a race?

We want to build community and improve the quality of life for residents of Northwest Arkansas: By holding a national caliber road cycling event in our downtown areas we are exposing people to bike racing that may not be familiar with professional and amateur cycling.  Our goal is to provide residents and visitors a world class (and free) event that is fun for people of all ages, regardless of whether they own a bike.

To help the cycling culture thrive in Northwest Arkansas:  We hope that this race series inspires people of all ages to get out and ride a bike.  We hope that at least one child who watches a race walks away thinking that they would like to race a bike someday and let them know that there are more options beyond football and basketball.
