Special Recognition – Arrowhead Water

We could not put this event together without the help of those generous sponsors who have been with us from the very beginning:

• Summerlin
• Howard Hughes Corporation
• Arrowhead Water

Their commitment, along with all of our new sponsors for 2013 promise to make this another memorable event as we push towards making a difference for The Candlelighters of Nevada.

Tour de Summerlin Start & Finish Line

Please make note that the start and finish line for this year’s event has been moved to the front side of the Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa (adjacent to Charleston Blvd.). There will be a designated parking lot for Tour de Summerlin participants so make sure you park in that area to be closer to the start and finish. We will also be hosting our post ride luncheon in the same area so you will be close to your vehicles and bicycles after you’re finished and relaxing with some delicious food!

Bike Path Entrance @ Fort Apache Update for 100 & 40 Mile0 Routes

A note to all 100 & 40 mile distance riders. Please note that we have made a slight change in where you can pick up the bike path route located towards the end of your riders. As you travel east down Peace (after making a right turn off of Grand Canyon), please pay close attention to the street signs as you will now be making a left hand turn at S. Chieftain (not Fort Apache). After you make the left on S. Chieftain, look for road markings and arrows that will point out the entrance to the bike path on your right hand side. This entrance more easily accessible than the one by the gas station at the corner of Peace and Fort Apache. This updated will be changed on the course maps and will be posted on the website by today and also available at packet pickup on Friday.

100 & 75 Mile Route Changes (as of 4.16.12)

Hello riders! Just as we do every year the week before our event, we go out and drive the routes to make sure that there are not an impending road or traffic issues. Due to ongoing construction throughout Las Vegas, you never know when new road work begins and ends. After driving the routes yesterday, we have discovered road issues in two different locations along the 100 & 75 mile routes. The Alexander pass at US95 is still under construction and will not be finished in time for Saturday. Therefore we have made a slight adjustment to avoid that area. Riders will now be routed to turn right on Gowan off of Cimarron. You’ll follow Gowan East to Rainbow and make a left on Rainbow. You’ll take Rainbow North to Alexander and turn right. This gets us back onto our original route. There is also major road construction on Jones north of the I-215. With traffic being taken down to only one lane, we are now going to redirect riders before they reach that construction zone. Riders will be directed to take Jones to Dorrell and make a left hand turn onto Dorrell. Stay on Dorrell until you reach Torrey Pines. Make a right turn onto Torrey Pines. Take Torrey Pines to Elkhorn and turn left onto Elkhorn. Take Elkhorn to Tenaya and make a right turn at Tenaya. This will also put riders back on regular route at this point. We will be posting revised/corrected maps to the website today, so please check back throughout the day to download a new map. We will also have color prints for all three routes available at packet pickup for all riders.

Red Rock Resort & Casino Joins Our Team

We are incredibly excited to announce that Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa has become one of our event sponsors this year. In addition to hosting our start & finish line on-site at the property, they will also be catering the post rider luncheon after the rides! With plenty of ample parking and one of the most beautiful resort destinations in all of Las Vegas, we are thrilled to be able to utilize their one-of-a-kind venue and fantastic catering services.

Make sure you visit their website (just click on the sponsor name to the right on this page) and you might even consider spending the night at the resort after the event. Heck, why not book a spa day on Sunday to take care of those tired muscles….or just spend the day relaxing by the pool.

A big thank you from all of us at Tour de Summerlin to those individuals over at Red Rock for their time, energy and support.
