A Week in the Bluffs

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 Little Sugar MTB presented by Mazda on October 15 and the Life Time Big Sugar Gravel presented by Mazda on October 21.
