A fall gravel camp & race in the Ozark Mountains

The latest addition to the VQ Camp Calendar, we're heading to Bentonville, Arkansas, an emerging cycling destination in the US. We'll kick off our 4 day camp with 2 pre-race rides, exploring the quiet roads that carve through ancient, pocked sandstone cliffs of Northwest Arkansas. The grand finale of our weekend will be the Big Sugar Gravel Race!

Designed to be challenging and rewarding with elevation gain throughout, loose gravel and pavement only at the start and finish, Big Sugar offers something even more — an experience. As the producer of the event, Life Time has curated the course to include various terrains and picturesque views throughout, while taking place during the same weekend as the Outer Bike Festival providing an unforgettable ride and a one-of-a-kind experience.

Join Vision Quest for an incredible 4 days in the highs and hollows of Northwest Arkansas. Our camp experience includes:

  • 3 days of riding, culminating with the Big Sugar Gravel Event
  • Big Sugar race entry (general registration is sold out!)
  • Daily meals curated and prepared by a private chef
  • Bike mechanic support
  • 3 nights in a single occupancy room at the South Walton Suites
