With beginnings as a road race team in early 2001, Central Arkansas Velo soon developed a two tiered structure of racers and recreational riders. Over time CARVE has evolved to encompass multiple disciplines of racing at all levels, organizing and hosting races locally, and advocacy work while continuing to have an active population of recreational riders .
-Support advocacy initiatives in areas such as cycling related public policy and infrastructure, environmental impact of events, and public relations
-Support cyclists in their development to become the most capable participants in their favorite discipline, such as fun rides, Gran Fondos, amateur races, gravel grinders, etc.
-Produce well organized events
