Best Gravel Cycling Events South-Central 2023

The team at Strambecco rates the Top Gravel events in the South-Central region for 2023 based on various factors, including reputation, route quality, location, rider feedback, and the overall uniqueness of the event or race.  South-Central includes events in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas.

The Mid-South in Oklahoma in March is a great late-winter, early-season event, as is Gravel Locos Hico, Texas, in May.  The Highlands Gravel classic is a great summer option and a UCI World Gravel Series event.  In the Fall, Big Sugar takes place in the cycling mecca, Bentonville, Arkansas, and is a Life Time Grand Prix Series event.

Strambecco does not list every event.  We strive to identify and review events that are special and noteworthy.  If you have suggestions on other events we should consider or review, don’t hesitate to contact us here or send us a note at
