CARTI’s Tour De Rock invites cyclists to ride for Arkansas cancer patients 

LITTLE ROCK — Nearly 1,000 cyclists will join CARTI on Saturday, June 1, for the 21st Annual Tour de Rock. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Patient Assistance Program, which provides comprehensive support services, such as transportation and lodging, to reduce potential barriers to treatment.

“Tour de Rock is more than a race—it’s a celebration of the collective impact we can make in the lives of cancer patients and their families,” said CARTI president and CEO Adam Head. “With each registration, cyclists help support our goal to ensure no one goes without access to treatment.” 

Considered the Fastest Century Ride in the South, Tour de Rock includes 25-, 50-, 62- and 100-mile pancake-flat routes with rest stops throughout Central Arkansas. Shotgun starts will begin at 6:30 a.m. at Washington & Vine Streets in North Little Rock. Following the race, CARTI will host an after-party with food, a beer garden and music at the First Security Amphitheater in Riverfront Park at 400 President Clinton Avenue.
