Last year the Las Vegas Valley Bicycle Club debuted a new ride, partnering with the City of North Las Vegas: The North Las Vegas Century. It was well received within our local community and I heard nothing but rave reviews on the organization, support and route. Not only was a hit with our cycling community, but the LVVBC raised over $12,000 for their supported charities. It was a win-win for a local century ride.
This year, they’re going a step further. They’re partnering with the City of North Las Vegas again, but adding another big charity into the mix. The Special Olympics. By combining forces they hope to make it a bigger and better ride, raising even more money for their charities: Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, Special Olympics, and the newly formed Southern Nevada Bicycle Coalition. It should be a blast!!
Here’s all the details so you can get signed up and trained for the ride.
