We are very excited to announce that the start and finish for this years event is going to be hosted at Downtown Summerlin, a vibrant urban core for this award-winning, 22,500-acre master-planned community. When the entire 400-acre development is complete, Downtown Summerlin will include fashion, dining, entertainment, Class-A office, and luxe, high density, urban-style residences. Connectivity within the Downtown will be accomplished through centrally located neighborhood parks, lush streetscapes and enhanced pedestrian corridors. Bounded by the 215 Beltway, Charleston Boulevard, Town Center Drive and Sahara Avenue, this walk-able urban experience will service both the local community and the entire Las Vegas Valley.
Please mark your calendars for APRIL 18TH, 2015 for next year’s Tour de Summerlin. This will mark our 14 year anniversary and we are excited to team up again with our event charity, the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, and hopefully raise even more money than last year for this wonderful organization. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for event updates as we start to prepare for another eventful day. This years event will feature a new location as we will be hosting our start/finish line from the newly completed Downtown Summerlin. The location will provide a new and exciting backdrop for our event, with plenty of parking and incredibly easy access from Interstate 215.
Please make note that we have made some slight adjustments to both our 100 mile and 75 mile routes for this year. It has always been our #1 priority to keep our riders as safe as possible by providing routes that minimize heavily trafficked areas. Please go to our RIDES page and download the newly updated routes if you are planning to ride the 100 or 75 mile routes. These updated routes eliminate a large number of street lights in the process and should provide for a safer and more enjoyable riding experience. Please make sure to share this information with family members or friends so they can download the new map. We will be providing printed maps which will be available at packet pickup. Thank you!
We are very excited to announce that the Element Hotel by Westin has joined on as ‘host hotel’ for the 2014 Tour de Summerlin. The hotel is located off of the I-215 freeway and Town Center and less than a 10 minute drive to The Vistas Park (start & finish line). Enjoy complimentary rise breakfast each morning and the convenience of smart-design in every guest room. They are pet friendly and eco-friendly. Tour de Summerlin participants will be offered a special ‘event’ rate. Follow this link to take advantage of special savings: Element Hotel/Tour de Summerlin
For the 13th consecutive year, we are so pleased to have the master plan of Summerlin and the Howard Hughes Corporation as our signature sponsor. Without their support and confidence, we wouldn’t be able to put this ‘rider friendly’ event on year after year. Their attention to detail in creating a master plan that has more miles of designated bike lanes than any other master plan in the city has created a bicyclists haven and our participants get to experience their thoughtful design first-hand. Thank you again to all of our friends and supporters over at Summerlin and the Howard Hughes Corporation.
Please mark your calendars for APRIL 26TH, 2014 for next year’s Tour de Summerlin.
