THE INNER CITY CLASSIC RIDE IS ON

Sept. 19, 2020

If you're looking for a USA Cycling sanctioned, real life ride in Central Arkansas, you're at the right place. The Inner City Classic will take place in 2020.

In order to comply with Arkansas Department of Health guidelines, we will be limiting registrations to insure that we can all enjoy a group ride while staying safe. Our cap will be 100-200 depending on final approval from ADH which we expect to get before August 17.

This ride has something for every rider:

  • 20 miles for beginners or those that just want to cruise
  • 40 miles for those looking for a weekend challenge
  • 64-mile metric century route up Wye mountain for the adventurous.

This is a great ride for a great cause as 100% of your registration fee goes towards sending students from Little Rock's inner city neighborhoods to Young Life Summer Camp.

BIG is not always better!  Because we are small, we can still be safe.  Come join a small, safe, in-person real cycling event. Because we are about the only live ride in Little Rock for 2020, we expect to sell out.  Grab a friend and sign up now.

 

Event Details

The Inner City Classic will take place on Saturday, September 19th, 2020.

We will depart from and return to the Rail Yard at 1212 E. Sixth Street. See start times by route distance below. After the ride, lunch will be provided by Count Porkula on the Rail Yard's spacious, outdoor patio.

This annual event helps raise funds to send kids to the best week of their life at Young Life camp.

YOUNG LIFE INNER CITY PROGRAM

Young Life Inner City serves High School students south of I-630

Young Life is an outreach ministry that introduces adolescents to Jesus Christ and helps them grow in their faith. We want to provide the students involved in our ministry a better understanding of who Jesus is and how He does and continues to impact their lives.

Our primary focus geographically and ministry-wise is high school students south of 630 in some of the most under-resourced parts of Little Rock. Our students encounter many difficulties and circumstances beyond their control.

Young Life has a big vision, and to fulfill that mission, volunteer leaders are essential. Our volunteer leaders are the ones in the trenches. Leaders meet our high school students where they are and love them regardless of their response. Often we go where no other person wants to go, to reach the furthest out kids.

With this mission, we hope that every kid is impacted, everywhere no matter what the places look like and we hope that we can make an impact with students that will last an eternity.

DONATE

If you would like to help us raise money for our inner city mission, here are some tips to help you out:

  • Ask friends, family or your employer to pledge a set dollar amount for every mile you ride
  • Bundle pledges to pay for one student to go to Young Life camp - $600
  • Use social media to help raise funds for camp scholarships

All contributions to Young Life are tax-deductible, and Young Life has the highest rating possible from Charity Navigator.
