Leaving from North Little Rock Maritime park head east and follow the Green Harper's loop signs. This 37 mile ride offers a flat scenic ride into some classic Arkansas Delta area.
Rumored to be named after the daughter of a prominent local leader (North Little Rock Mayor Pat Hays), Harper's Loop is a classic Central Arkansas route. As flat as you can get, this route is well suited for everyone from those just starting to get their cycling legs to hammerheads wanting to practice their pace-line skills. When we say flat the entire 37 miles has 116 feet of climbing.
Don't let the flat course profile give you a false sense that this route is too easy to present a challenge, as it has been said that this area is in the center of a strange meteorological phenomena that almost guarantees a head wind regardless of the direction you face!
