RTC Bike Event Registration Opens

 

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.

Viva Bike Vegas will again occur at the end of Interbike, the largest bicycle trade event in North America. Interbike 2013 will be held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Sept. 18-20, and Viva Bike Vegas will take place immediately following the show.

Registration for the RTC Viva Bike Vegas 2013 Gran Fondo Pinarello is available at vivabikevegas.com and during the early registration period, all rides cost $85 and event jerseys are $65. 

Proceeds from Viva Bike Vegas will benefit these local charities: Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, After-School All-Stars Las Vegas, Communities in Schools of Nevada and Nevada Child Seekers.
