Big Sugar Classic

The Life Time Big Sugar Classic features a world-class mountain bike race and world-class gravel race in the cycling capital of the U.S., Northwest Arkansas. It’s a week-long celebration that allows off-road enthusiasts to shred both the MTB trails and gravel roads that put this corner on the map. Wind down the season with a sugar crash and join us for the Life Time Big Sugar Gravel presented by Mazda on October 21.

Canopy covered gravel roads will lead you through the remote and rugged highlands of the Ozark Mountains in Northwest Arkansas and Southern Missouri. The courses go along Sugar Creek and through the bluffs and hollers, including picturesque fall foliage painted around you.

Expect these to be more challenging courses featuring rarely maintained roads with loose, rocky gravel, a few pavement sections and a few water crossings and bridges. If you like to ride in the dirt, venture off into stunning landscapes and share an experience with fellow cyclists, Life Time Big Sugar Gravel presented by Mazda is a race reserved for you.

Dust off your gravel bike and get ready for a weekend in the Bluffs! This guide will give you all the information you need to be successful in tackling the first ever Big Sugar weekend.
