Prestige Ozark Plateau & Ozark Gravel Fondo

Friday, May 11 - Sunday, May 13

Despite boasting some of the highest peaks outside the Rockies and the Appalachians, the Ozark Mountains are still uncharted territory for all but those cyclists in the know. To put the region firmly on the map as a riding destination, we're hosting a full weekend of rides and celebration.

Join us from Friday, May 11 to Sunday, May 13 for two great rides showcasing the deep valleys and thick forests of the Ozarks. Off the bike, we’ll have local food and live music from local collaborators, all based out of a Rapha Pop-Up Clubhouse in downtown Bentonville.

Rapha Bentonville Pop-Up

Clubhouses are a cyclist’s home from home, a place to watch live racing, browse the latest Rapha products and meet for group rides exploring the surrounding hills. Located on the edge of the Ozark Mountains, Bentonville, AR is the perfect base from which to explore superb riding. From hillier rides through the forests and gorges on the Ozarks to more rolling routes over flatter terrain, it’s a cycling destination for any rider.

The Rapha Pop-up Clubhouse will be open from April 16 until June 3.
