Arkansas Roots Ride

The Arkansas Roots Ride begins and ends at the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home, and invites bicycle riders to experience the wide-open Delta spaces between the Dyess Colony and the Southern Tenant Farmers Museum at Tyronza. The 30-mile out-and-back course starts on the gravel road at the Cash home.  Only the first quarter mile of the course is gravel.  

The 2024 event is part of the Solar Eclipse Festival at the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home. The ride begins at 8 a.m. on April 6. Participants will receive a t-shirt, lunch, and admission to the Arkansas Roots Music Festival that afternoon. Tickets are $55 in advance or $60 after March 15.
