“A Weekend in the Bluffs.”

“Designed to be challenging and rewarding with elevation gain throughout, loose gravel and pavement only at the start and finish, Big Sugar offers something even more — an experience. As the producer of the event, Life Time has curated the course to include various terrains and picturesque views throughout, while taking place during the same weekend as the Outer Bike Festival providing an unforgettable ride and a one-of-a-kind experience.” – Big Sugar Gravel

Big Sugar Gravel (the subject of this video)

“A 100-mile gravel race in the remote and rugged highlands of the Ozark Mountains. Expect this to be one of the most challenging gravel courses featuring picturesque, rarely maintained, canopy-covered gravel 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, Big Sugar Gravel is a race reserved for you.”

‘Lil Sugar Gravel

“A 50-mile gravel race located in the highlands but designed for recreational cyclists. Lil Sugar is a challenging, shorter-distance option, designed to serve as an introduction to endurance cycling and a “stepping stone” towards the Big Sugar. Tackle the Little Sugar this year, then go for the full 100 miles the following year.”
