WELCOME

SOUTHERN NEVADA’S LONGEST RUNNING BICYCLE EVENT

The 2018 Tour de Summerlin will mark our 17th year running and we are so appreciative for all the sponsors, riders and volunteers who have supported our event over the past 16 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.

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, 60 and 40 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!

Tour de Summerlin offers three different ride distances for your enjoyment. Whether you’re a hard core rider or just enjoy getting out on the bike, each bike route offers plenty of bike lanes, beautiful scenery and unique riding experiences. With continual construction and ever changing road obstacles from year to year, we are always looking to update our bike routes as necessary to provide the safest and most rider friendly courses.

The 2018 bike routes are being finalized and will be posted once approved. We will be working with city officials as we get closer to the event and will notify all participants if there are any changes to our bike routes prior to the event. Our number one concern is rider safety and please be assured that we will address any and all road construction issues that exist.

Please note that bike routes are subject to change. We will be providing written out street directions and maps at packet pickup as well as posting them here on this site and on Facebook and Twitter.
