LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Route changes have been made for Saturday’s Tour de Rock ride benefiting CARTI due to Arkansas River flooding.
A thousand cyclists are set to attend CARTI’s Tour de Rock, one of Arkansas’ largest cycling events. Participants include cancer survivors, CARTI patients and their supporters.
Route changes include:
25M Route: Will remain intact with no changes.
50M, 62M and 100M Routes: Will be re-routed away from Lower Steel Bend Road at Dam Site Road. Route distance loss was minimal – less than 3 miles for each route!
Due to the closing of the Clinton Presidential Bridge, we are encouraging all riders to park on the north side of the river at the Verizon Arena parking lot located at the corner of Riverfront Drive and Cypress Street. The start/finish line is just a few blocks away at Riverfront Drive and Brother Paul Drive. Parking is first-come, first-served.
“We hope that these changes will ensure all of our riders have a safe, enjoyable ride,” a spokesperson said.
Registration begins at 6 a.m.
An after party will take place at Heifer International, located at 1 World Avenue, 72202 at 10 a.m.
