IMPORTANT NEWS REGARDING 2020 TOUR DE SUMMERLIN
Dear TDS Participants –
Again… with disappointment and sadness, we must inform you that the Tour de Summerlin has not been approved to be held in person on April 24, 2021 as planned. We are now going to defer the event to the tentative date of September 25th along with the Summerlin Half Marathon and the Downtown Summerlin Wellness Festival.
The unfortunate events surrounding this pandemic and the state of Nevada’s mandates make it almost impossible to put on a memorable and fun event for our participants in April.
All of you that are registered will maintain your current registration with be no added fees. The cycling community has been so supportive of our event over the years and we are so very appreciative for your patience, support and understanding over this past year. We miss seeing your faces and look forward to a day where we can be together again… enjoying the great sport of cycling. Sending positivity and good health wishes to you and your loved ones.
SOUTHERN NEVADA’S LONGEST RUNNING BICYCLE EVENT
The 2020 Tour de Summerlin will mark our 20th year running and we are so appreciative for all the sponsors, riders and volunteers who have supported our event over the past 19 years. This event was and still is made possible through the encouragement and support of the beautiful Masterplan of Summerlin and the Howard Hughes Corporation. Back in 2000 we set out to create the most ‘rider friendly’ bicycling event in the southwest, and we’ve stuck to that mission year after year after year.
One of the most unique aspects of the Tour de Summerlin is the abundant amount of biking lanes that are used throughout the different routes. Our #1 commitment has always been rider safety and utilizing miles and miles of biking lanes creates a ‘rider friendly’ experience. It’s also hard to beat the winning combination of Summerlin’s man-made amenities and Mother Nature. This event shows off the active lifestyle for which this area is known for with scenic backdrops that make it one of the best places to bicycle in the entire Southwest.
This year’s start and finish line will again be located at beautiful Downtown Summerlin. This is the ultimate destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in southern Nevada and sure to create a dynamic and engaging experience for the entire community. Invite your family, friends and supporters to come out and enjoy a day of shopping and dining before heading over to the finish line to cheer you on!
We will continue to offer three different ride distances: 80, 40 and 20 miles. With it being so early in the biking season (April), we believe that it’s important to maintain routes that are still challenging enough for the most serious riders, but also attainable for those riders who are looking to push themselves to a higher level or complete a long distance for the first time as the weather begins to warm. We are constantly striving to enhance and improve our ride experiences. This involves evaluating current and future road construction, possible safety issues and minimizing stoplight and stop sign constrictions. Please make sure you are following us on Facebook and Twitter to receive the most current and up-to-date information. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event!
