Registration recently opened for one of the most anticipated cycling events of the year, set for September 2013.
The sixth annual RTC Viva Bike Vegas, put on by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) will take place Saturday, Sept. 21.
The event will offer routes for all skill levels, including a 103-mile Gran Fondo, a 60-mile Metric Century, and a 17-mile ride. All routes will begin on the Strip, and the longer routes will ring the valley, taking riders into the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and near Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
“We envision making Viva Bike Vegas the ultimate one-day cycling experience on the West Coast,” said Fausto Pinarello, president of Pinarello cycling, the bicycle manufacturer and official sponsor of Viva Bike Vegas.
