I have been working on the 2017 BRAA, which will start in mid April this year. It is almost complete and I believe will be a good one. The plan has us starting in Dardanelle, pedaling to Paris for lunch and then up Mount Magazine for the night. Might as well get the climb over the first day.
The second day is from Mt. Magazine to Waldron, AR. We start with several miles of downhill, so that is a good start.
The third day is from Waldron to a camping area in Oklahoma. I will drive to it in advance to see if there are any problems.
The fourth day is back into Arkansas to a RV site just North of "Y" City.
The Fifth day is to Lake Nimrod. I have not decided on which park we will pick for the night.
Now comes an option. The Sixth day can be back to Dardanelle, which will probably be the main pick. But the Sixth day can be to Petit Jean for the night and finish on he Seventh day.
This is just a quick look at the plan. Further posts will be made as we get closer to the date.
