Bike the Strip and Hoover Dam in One Ride

Bike riders can look forward to a chance to cruise the Strip before heading out to Hoover Dam this fall.

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has announced that the RTC 2012 Viva Bike Vegas Gran Fondo will again begin on the Las Vegas Strip and century riders will have the opportunity to ride over the Hoover Dam.

This year, the RTC has also partnered with Interbike, the largest bicycle trade event in North America, to bring more industry participation to the annual event. The 2012 edition of Interbike will be held at the Sands Expo Center, Sept. 17 through 21, and the RTC 2012 Viva Bike Vegas Gran Fondo will take place immediately following the show on Saturday, Sept. 22.

All riders will again have the opportunity to begin their ride under the lights of the Strip. The RTC 2012 Viva Bike Vegas Gran Fondo will feature three spectacular routes – 118, 72, and 17-mile courses – for cyclists of all skill levels taking riders 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. Century and 72-mile riders will have the additional opportunity to ride over the Hoover Dam

Rider registration for the RTC 2012 Viva Bike Vegas Gran Fondo is available online at at www.vivabikevegas.com and during this early registration period, all rides cost $75.  

Proceeds from Viva Bike Vegas will again benefit local charities: After-School All-Stars Las Vegas, Nevada Cancer Institute and Communities in Schools of Nevada.
