Las Vegas Valley Bicycle Club: Poker Run 3/26/11

Friday, March 18th, 2011

It’s time for the Annual Poker Run held by the Las Vegas Valley Bicycle Club!

Poker Run Logo

3/26/11 - Saturday
Start Time: 9:00am
Starting Location: Northwest Career & Technical Academy
8200 W. Tropical Pkwy., Las Vegas, NV

If anyone hasn’t done a poker run before, here’s what you can expect…..
At the start of the ride, you get one playing card. You then proceed to ride their designated route (which I believe is 22 miles) and all along the route, there are stops. At each stop, you receive another playing card. When you are finished with the ride, you receive one last playing card. Now you have enough cards in your hand for a round of poker. Basically, they are awarding prizes for best hand, 2nd best hand & lowest hand.

While we eat lunch, inclusive in the registration fee, they will be sorting through the hands to then announce the winners.

It’s a fun game and ride. I hope you will join me this coming Saturday.

Oh…They also will be raffling off more prizes giving you even more chances to win a prize if you don’t win the poker hands.

Some things you need to know though in order to participate:

1. There is a fee of $25 for non-LVVBC members. $20 for LVVBC Members.
2. This ride supports a non-profit organization, the Las Vegas Valley Bicycle Club, who will then in part donate a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Hospitality and Culinary Student groups at the Northwest Career & Technical Academy.
3. Route is 22 miles, relatively flat, so it’s perfect for ALL LEVELS! Beginners are welcome.
4. Sign-in begins at 8:30am. Ride begins at 9am sharp!
5. YOU MUST REGISTER BEFORE 3/23/11. They cannot allow for same day registrations in order to prepare for the lunch. So, please send in your registration before 3/23/11.

Fox 5 News: Motorists vs. Bicycles

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Thanks to Jim Little of the Las Vegas Valley Bicycle Club, Kevin Eubanks (LVVBC and BLV) and Jon Castagnino of Fox 5 News for reporting on the dangers of Bicycling on the Las Vegas Valley roadways.  Kevin Eubanks had a camera mounted on his bike by Fox 5 to capture his daily commutes to and from work.  The video footage captured a few dangerous situations between Kevin and motorists.  Also, Jim Little and myself were featured on the news story because we, too, have had dangerous situations happen when riding our bikes. (Thanks to Don Laczi for sending over the footage of our Halloween ride where an SUV cut off me and another cyclist to get onto the 215.)
