Arkansas Delta Flatlander
This is actually two rides in one. Riders can choose the 62-mile (metric century) road ride or the 21-mile St. Francis Levee Gravel Grinder – or both, if you’re a hardcore cyclist! The Flatlander starts at Big River Crossing at 8:30 in the morning, skirts the city of West Memphis along the Mississippi River, then wends south to encircle Horseshoe Lake, rejoining the route back to West Memphis and BRX. The gravel grinder, suited for “fat-tire” bicycles, leaves West Memphis at 1:30 in the afternoon, following the new trail atop the St. Francis Levee.
Registration is $35 for either the Flatlander or the gravel grinder. Registrants who sign up for both rides will get a $10 discount and pay a total of $60. Register for this Memphis Hightailers-sponsored event here.
