Every year, cyclists brave the Arkansas High Country
bike-packing race on some of the best and worst
gravel roads in the state, riding 1,000 miles and
climbing 80,000 feet. With little to no sleep and
having to carry, find, or buy everything needed to
complete the course, some cyclists push their limits to
achieve the fastest known time while others simply try
to finish the race and find themselves along the way.
As bodies fail and minds betray, these cyclists explore
the depth of their own humanity.
