IMPORTANT NEWS REGARDING 2020 TOUR DE SUMMERLIN
Dear TDS Participants –
It is with great disappointment we notify you that this year’s Tour de Summerlin has not been approved to be held in person on November 7, 2020 as planned. We are deferring the event to April 24, 2021, along with the Summerlin Half Marathon and the Downtown Summerlin Wellness Festival.
The State is not approving any City events at this time due to the pandemic and the Governor’s mandate of no gatherings of over 50 people. We want to provide you with the best event possible without masks and social distancing, and also being able to include after event festivities and spectators.
All of you that are currently registered will automatically roll over to the 4/24/2021 event with no additional fees. We are so appreciative for all of your continued patience, support and understanding during this challenging and uncertain time. We are so looking forward to seeing all of you in 2021 and putting on our best event yet!
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!
