General info: The 62 mile and 100 miles routes both climb and descend Wye Mt on HWY 300. There is a roughly 4 mile section that has several tight downhill curves. This area is scheduled to be signed with large yellow signs denoting this. For your safety we ask that you please watch your speed through this area.
Route Signage: We make significant efforts to provide signs on the course so that it is easy to follow. We cannot be all places at all times and occasionally we have vandalism on the course, where signs are stolen or changed. Sag and Mechanical Support on the course: Each Aid Station has bike tubes in the most popular size and a tire pump. Feel free to use these. If you are between stations and need support please let an event staff know and we will notify the mechanical support vehicles. Please note - it may take 30 minutes or so before one arrives once they are notified. This is for emergency mechanical support not a convenience store delivery service. We will have Sag support on all the different distance routes. If you find yourself unable to continue we will pick you up. Once we
are aware of the need for a pick up, it may take us 30 minutes or so to get to you. Depending on where you are in the course you may be taken to an aid station that has a schedule shuttle bus back to the finish area. We ask for your patience.
After the Ride…..Enjoy complimentary food and beverages along Main Street in North Little Rock at “Finale Fest”, sponsored by the Argenta Arts Council until 4 pm. Also available are showers, entertainment and other cycling friends. Restaurants, shops and bars are open during this time, so please go in and enjoy the hospitality of the Argenta Community.
