If you're looking for a USA Cycling-sanctioned, real-life ride in Central Arkansas, you're in the right place. The Inner City Classic has been approved by the Arkansas Department of Health and will take place in 2020.

In order to comply with Arkansas Department of Health guidelines, we will be limiting registrations to 120 riders to insure that we can all enjoy a group ride while staying safe. Because we are one of only a few live rides in Little Rock for 2020, we expect to reach that limit fast, so register while you still can!

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.


Update: We have reached our maximum capacity! Registration for the Inner City Classic is now closed.

If you missed out this year, don’t worry! You can still register as a virtual rider or sponsor a camper on our Bike Reg page. Whatever you choose to do, we hope you keep us in mind and join us on next year’s ride!

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.


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.
