3 Foot Law Campaign Billboards Around Town

October 30th, 2014

NOW THIS IS WHAT I LOVE TO SEE!  I received a message from Ron at the RTC informing me of the new 3 Foot Law Billboards that NDOT recently started up as a part of their Zero Fatalities Campaign.  Take a look as you bicycle (or drive) around town and you may just see one of these:

3 Foot Law Campaign Billboards

Here are a listing of intersections that will display the billboard:

  • LVBN WS 400ft N/O Lamb F/S
  • Charleston NS 500ft E/O Bruce F/E
  • Rancho ES 500ft S/O Lone Mtn F/N
  • Cheyenne SS 1000ft E/O Rancho F/E
  • Koval WS 1000ft N/O Harmon F/S
  • Alta NS 700ft W/O Decatur F/E
  • Desert Inn SS 50ft E/O Highland F/E
  • Nellis WS 100ft S/O Stewart F/S

  • Flamingo SS 280ft W/O Cameron F/W
  • Sahara ES 200ft E/O Sorrel F/E

Thank you NDOT for bringing attention and awareness to this law!  And thank you Ron for sharing it with us.

October 2nd, 2014

Park to Park Pedal Extreme in Caliente, NV

This is one of the best rides you’ll ever do.  It’s well supported and it’s run by the most friendly people you’ll ever meet along any organized ride.

DATE:  SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11th, 2014

LOCATION:  KERSHAW-RYAN STATE PARK in CALIENTE, NV
Just a few hours drive from Las Vegas, NV! Make a weekend out of it and go hiking on Day 2 at Cathedral Gorge!

RIDE OPTIONS:
There are three ride options for all levels of riders: 40, 60 and 100 mile options.

The 100 mile option takes you through 4 Nevada State Parks that are breathtaking!!  You’ll definitely want to stop and smell the roses on this ride.

Even better… ALL RIDE OPTIONS receive a T-shirt, free continental breakfast the morning of the event, a fully supported ride with rest stops and SAG, and a post-ride DUTCH OVEN DINNER.  It truly is one of the most unique ride experiences you’ll have!

BENEFITS LINCOLN COUNTY NEVADA AND THEIR STATE PARKS:
BikingLasVegas.com supports this ride once again (4th year), and is proud to be a promotional sponsor to help aid our State Parks up in Lincoln County to raise money for their beautiful parks and campgrounds.

RIDER CAP:  250 Riders
If you want to register for this event, register now vs. later.  They were very close to filling up their event last year, so we do expect this year to sell out!

COST TO REGISTER IS $80

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE PARK TO PARK FROM BIKINGLASVEGAS.COM:
Every year our group goes up and we have such a great time!

  • We start off with our FRIDAY NIGHT PASTA POTLUCK DINNER AT KERSHAW-RYAN (thanks to Mark Bergtholdt for starting this annual tradition for us!).  Every one brings an item to the potluck and we cook the pasta and sauces right there on the spot.  Hey… we need our carbs!  :D
  • Saturday - DAY OF THE RIDE. We take pics and goof off along the way… enjoying the beautiful scenery and fantastic support.
  • SATURDAY POST-RIDE: We eat the yummy Dutch Oven dinner at Kershaw-Ryan campgrounds and then hang out after having smores and/or toasted marshmallows.
  • SUNDAY RECOVERY/DISCOVERY - the day after the ride, we go hiking at one of the nearby parks like Cathedral Gorge!

WE MAKE A FUN WEEKEND GETAWAY OUT OF THIS… and so far everyone has always enjoyed it!

I hope to see everyone there again this year… enjoying this truly unique ride.

A Message from A Member: David Walker

October 2nd, 2014

I received an email from one of our members who had a health incident while riding his bike.  He wanted me to share this with you and to thank those who came upon him that day and helped him.  Whomever you are… thank you for taking the time to help out a fellow cyclist when you saw he needed help.  It’s because of people like you that make our cycling community so great!  Thank you!!

Message from David Walker (Pastor Dave):

Hello Lisa,

Just wanted to say to you how awesome the Las Vegas bike community is, and you are responsible for that in a large way. On Thursday I was riding the bike path west of the 215 right at Summerlin pkwy. Was feeling light-headed so I stopped my bike. What I didn’t know was I had a 99% blockage of my right coronary artery and was having a heart attack on the path. I awoke to some fellow cyclists taking care of me and calling the paramedics. From the time that the fire dept loaded me up to the first cut in the cath lab was just 39 minutes. I have no idea who the riders were, but they saved my life! Minimal cardiac damage due to a strong heart from years of riding. I’ll be out of the hospital tomorrow and looking forward to getting back on the saddle when the doctor clears me. Thanks for all you’ve done.

David (Pastor Dave on the street).
