AO Sponsored Events

As a part of the outdoor community in Arkansas, Arkansas Outside takes great pride in supporting numerous events throughout the year. We currently sponsor and help organize three very different events all designed to introduce people to outdoor participatory sports.

  • Cyclofemme – Started as a global women’s cycling event in 2012, Cyclofemme is designed to encourage women to embrace the emancipating joy of riding a bike. Arkansas Outside hosts the Central Arkansas version of this Mother’s Day event.
  • Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day – The International Mountain Biking Association has set the first Saturday of October as Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day. Arkansas Outside with local bike clubs and shops invites kids to bring their parents out to enjoy a day of fun obstacle course and easy mountain bike trail rides.
  • Race the Base – A great way to get introduced to trail running, Race the Base is held in November at Pinnacle Mountain State Park and supports the efforts of Partners for Pinnacle a volunteer group dedicated to making improvements at this beautiful park. The terrain is rocky but you don’t have to go up the mountain. Come on out and enjoy a Fall day in the park.
