Weather & Gear Check

  • Arkansas weather is unpredictable. The average high in the beginning of October is 70 degrees while the average low is 48 degrees. To accommodate our riders, our support team will collect gear (either at a support stop, or a support vehicle) and pick it up at the community center upon completion of the ride. This gear check is available as a courtesy to all riders.
  • In the event of a weather emergency, all riders should take cover immediately.  Aid stations will serve as communication points for riders and SAG drivers will aid riders if any severe weather arises.
  • Check bicycle tires/brakes/etc. before you come; there will be limited access to bicycle repair supplies. A couple of the support vehicles will have a few tubes, some basic tools, and a pump, but the nearest bike shop is an hour away.

R.A.P.T.O.R Gravel Grinder
Nov 23 @ 9:00 am
A combination of pavement, gravel and a little single track dirt thrown in for good measure. Three distances. This event has a twist…only the mileages and elevations of road, gravel and dirt will be released. The actual course will be published at 8 am the day before the event. You will discover some new terrain and roads that you didn’t know existed in NW Arkansas. Great post-race party on top of a hard day in the saddle. Gravel or Mountain bikes will be the choice.
EVENT DATE: Saturday November 23, 2019
PRICE: $50.00 Series Fee
REGISTRATION: Price increases to $55.00 after September 30, 2019 at 11:59pm CDT
