About the Ride:

ARK-LA-TEX Challenge
The Ark-La-Tex Challenge offers both novice and experienced cyclists a ride unlike many others. This ride will allow you to ride through three states in one ride. We offer five different distances to accommodate different cyclist levels. 35 Miles into the 70 mile route you will arrive at 3 states and get to take a victory photo standing in Arkansas, Texas, and Louisiana! Just the motivation you need half way through! 
Route Lengths
70 Miles – Ark-La-Tex Challenge
52 Miles – Texas/Arkansas Loop
46 Miles – Arkansas/Texas Out and Back
35 Miles – Ark-La-Tex with Non-Supported Return
22 Miles – Arkansas/ Texas Challenge out and back

Note – This year we will NOT offer a 35 mile supported return. The route will still be posted if a 35 mile route is desired but riders will need to arrange their own transport for them and their bicycle back to the starting location.
