LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Arkansas’ 10th annual largest cycling tour is kicking off this weekend.
The Big Dam Bridge 100 will begin at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 24. 3,000 cyclists are expected to join in the ride, including THV11's Dawn Scott, Laura Monteverdi and Erika Ferrando.
The event celebrates the Big Dam Bridge over the Arkansas River. The 4,226-foot bridge is the longest bridge built for pedestrian and bicycle traffic in North America, and connects over 15 miles of scenic riverside trails between Little Rock and North Little Rock. It also serves as the backbone for connecting over 70,000 acres of various city, county, state and federal parks.
The Big Dam Bridge 100 offers several routes ranging between 10 and 100 miles, with mountain and river scenery, as well as a few challenging hills on the longer routes.
The event provides participants with maps, well-stocked aid stations, great volunteer support, and an event t-shirt, a finisher product, as well as food and drinks. The event finish line ends in the Argenta District of downtown North Little Rock with a BDB100 block party and live music.
