A couple updates from our friends at the City of Henderson:
- A segment of the RMLT will be closed on May 18 – 19 (Monday and Tuesday) due to construction activity near Railroad Pass. Please see map for the location.
- Henderson will be conducting bike counts throughout the City roadway and trail system to better understand which facilities riders are using. This will also help us in our pursuit of Silver Certification as a Bicycle Friendly Community with the League of American Bicyclists. A few more volunteers are needed on May 28th. Please contact Scott Jarvis at email@example.com for more details. A detailed map of the count locations can be found at www.bikehenderson.org

Nevada fell one spot from 2014’s ranking to #31 this year according to the League of American Bicyclists’ 2015 Bicycle Friendly States Ranking Report. Not sure why we dropped one spot as we’ve increased laws to protect cyclists and the newly formed Southern Nevada Bicycle Coalition is now active, but the report card did give us some feedback and suggestions that may help Nevada increase its ranking as time goes by. It will be interesting to see how our state will rank as the years progress and if we can break into the top 20! Wouldn’t that be great!?
Keep riding those bikes and bringing more people to our love of 2 wheels. The more people that ride the better it will be to get new bike infrastructure and funding to our state.
