The Whitney Gravel Ride

Race Details

9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Sunday, July 29, 2018.  Grab your gravel bike (road bikes won't do here) for an all-out adventure ride featuring 30 miles of scenic gravel (70%) and paved back country roads including a climb to the HIGHEST point in Benton County...Whitney Mountain.

Departing from Avoca, Arkansas on Sunday July 29, riders will follow a well-marked route featuring everything from beautiful rolling gravel, to some of the TOUGHEST climbs in Benton County. The route will challenge most riders, with close to 2,500 feet of climbing packed into 30 miles.

But, with SAG support and a mid-ride experience from our sponsors Phat Tire Bike Shop at the top of Whitney Mountain, we'll make sure everyone makes it back. All riders who make it to the top of Whitney Mountain will receive a custom event patch.

The ride will start and end near the Avoca Town Hall.
