The Motorcycle Cannonball 2021 will be making an official route stop in Arkadelphia on Wednesday.

Approximately 100, pre-1930’s, antique motorcycles will line the streets of downtown Arkadelphia starting at 4:30 p.m., and ending at 6:30 p.m.

About 240 riders and support staff will be visiting Southwest Arkansas for the event. City officials have been planning for their arrival for two years, as the event was postponed due to COVID-19.
