RTC Viva Bike Vegas

Fabulous Las Vegas is again calling cycling enthusiasts in Nevada and across the country to join the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada for Viva Bike Vegas 2011 on Saturday, Oct. 15.

This year, all riders will have the unique opportunity to bike the bright lights of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip with a police escort. The fourth annual cycling event will feature three spectacular routes for cyclists of all skill levels, including a 103-mile century ride as well as 60-mile and 17-mile routes. Century riders will travel from the Las Vegas Strip to the vistas of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and the scenic trails near Lake Mead National Park. Proceeds from RTC Viva Bike Vegas 2011 will benefit three local charities: Nevada Cancer Institute, After-School All-Stars Las Vegas and Nevada Child Seekers.

Following the ride, cyclists and spectators will be able to quench their thirst at the RTC's Viva Bike Vegas Beer Garden. The RTC Viva Bike Vegas and the After-School All-Stars Las Vegas also invite everyone to register for the All-Star Charity Poker Ride as an addition to your 103, 60 or 17 mile ride. Entry fee is $25 per person/hand with the option to buy "bonus cards" for $5 each (limit is 2 bonus cards per hand).
