SOUTHERN NEVADA’S LONGEST RUNNING BICYCLE EVENT
The 2015 Tour de Summerlin will mark our 14th year running and we are so appreciative for all the sponsors, riders and volunteers who have supported our event over the past 13 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 2002 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. We are extremely proud to be affiliated with the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada as they have been our charity of choice for the past 4 years and we couldn’t think of a better organization to be partnering with.
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. Its 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.
We are very excited to announce that we will be moving our start and finish to the newly completed Downtown Summerlin. This will be the ultimate destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in Southern Nevada and sure to create a dynamic and engaging experience for the entire community.
Mark your calendars for April 18th, 2015 for next years event. We will also be announcing our route distances in the upcoming months. We are constantly working on enhancing and improving 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 next year’s event!
