Reverse Red Rock Perimeter Starting at Jones and Sunset
(Starting Zip: 89118) Here's one of our favorite routes, starting at one of our new favorite places, the Tropical Smoothie/SambaLatte location on Jones and Sunset. This is a moderate level ride that takes you through scenic Red Rock, the reverse way... from the 160. Instead of taking the same old roads, I threw in some new roads for a different excursion. Hope you'll join me!
Above the Crust Social Ride
(Starting Zip: 89149) This is a shorter version of the Above the Crust route for riders who choose not to ride 40 miles. It is in the northwest part of the valley and will take you on roads you may not normally ride on. Enjoy pizza at the end of your ride!

(Starting Zip: 89149) This route stays in the northwest part of the valley. It includes a hill climb at the gun range. At the end of the ride, come back and enjoy some New York style pizza!
Southern Highlands to Jean and Back
(Starting Zip: 89141) Starting from the Smith's shopping center at Cactus & Southern Highlands Parkway, you'll ride all the way South, jumping on Las Vegas Blvd South, and head to the gas station at Jean. Bring some friends, because this route is best when you can share in the pulls and paceline to Jean and back. Not for beginner riders... this is an intermediate level ride.
McTodd's NW Sunday FITNESS Ride
(Starting Zip: 89130) Starting at McTodd's McDonald's on Lone Mountain and Decatur, Bikerdude helped me route out a fun FITNESS level ride for those of you who want a little bit of everything... flats, a good climb up the gun range. This is perfect for the intermediate rider who wants a fitness level ride.
McTodd's NW Sunday SOCIAL Ride
(Starting Zip: 89130) Starting at McTodd's McDonald's on Lone Mountain and Decatur, Bikerdude helped me route out a fun SOCIAL level ride, just under 25 miles and relatively flat!

BikingLasVegas.com Tuesday SPRING Night Ride - SOCIAL Group
(Starting Zip: 89118) Here is the new route for our Tuesday SPRING night ride for the SOCIAL group. Starting location is the Tropical Smoothie on Jones/Sunset. This route is the shortest of the three options, and has less climbing than the FITNESS or INTENSE Spring night rides. I gave it a difficulty level of moderate due to the amount of initial climbing the riders will have from the start. This route will take the 215 Beltway trail from Desert Inn to Town Center.
BikingLasVegas.com Tuesday SPRING Night Ride - FITNESS Group
(Starting Zip: 89118) Here is the new route for our Tuesday SPRING night ride for the FITNESS group. Starting location is the Tropical Smoothie on Jones/Sunset. This route has more climbing than the SOCIAL group, but a little less than the INTENSE group. I gave it a difficulty level of Moderate due to the amoutn of climbing that basically starts from the beginning, all the way to the top of Alta (about 14 miles).
BikingLasVegas.com Tuesday SPRING Night Ride - INTENSE Group
(Starting Zip: 89118) Here is the new route for our Tuesday SPRING night ride for the INTENSE group. Starting location is the Tropical Smoothie on Jones/Sunset. This route is the longest of the three options, and has more climbing than the FITNESS or SOCIAL Spring night rides. I gave it a difficulty level of Hard due to the faster speed this group of riders normally rides. NOTE: This route could change to add more climbing around the sageberry / far hills loop and/or Hidden House, if the group decides to extend it out for a few more miles and elevation gain.

(Starting Zip: 89113) A ride starting/ending from the Capriotti's on Blue Diamond, near Cimarron. Take the 160 directly in to Red Rock and then ride all the way to Calico Basin. Be careful making that left turn into Calico. Take a look at the beautiful red rocks while making your way all the way to the end of the road where it dead ends. Come back the same way, but instead of crossing the 160 at Cimarron, make a right turn on Durango and work your way South into Mountains Edge and come back on Buffalo to the traffic light where you can safely cross over from there. Back to Capriotti's for a post-ride sandwich. NOTE: The route is very scenic, but you will be traveling on a busier stretch of road (Blue Diamond Road) for most of the ride. Keep that in mind if you don't like riding next to faster moving vehicle traffic.

Southern Highlands Ride into The Lakes and Back
(Starting Zip: 89141) Here are a couple ways to get you in and out of The Lakes from Southern Highlands. Lots of rides start from the Summerlin so if you want to ride to the start, this is the best route I've found so far to get into the Lakes and back.
BLV Thursday Night Menchie's FroYo Ride - Alternate C Group Route
(Starting Zip: 89148) This is an alternate route for the C riders that will keep them off Sahara, which has been getting a little busy lately. It will cut off the Preakness climb, but that's it. Try it out and see if you like it better.
Southern Highlands to Blue Diamond General Store
(Starting Zip: 89141) Starting at the Smith's Shopping Center on Cactus and Southern Highlands Parkway. Ride Decatur to Blue Diamond Highway and then all the way up the 160 into Red Rock to the Blue Diamond Store and back. Out and back route. I classified this route as moderate because of being on the 160 Blue Diamond Road... it's fairly busy with high moving traffic, so not necessarily the best route for a new rider or anyone that doesn't like riding with faster traffic.

This route map displays the 103 Mile Extreme option. This ride is the most challenging with approximately 5600 ft of climbing; you pedal through 4 state parks, 2 old west towns, and up Pioche Hill.

They have a lot more seating for the group, plus it's self-serve and they're open to 11pm.

NEW Golden Spoon Thursday Night Ride - 25 miles
(Starting Zip: 89117) This will be our new route on Thursday night, adding a few extra miles and another climb up Far Hills for our summertime route.
M to Jean + Southern Highlands Democracy Loop Option
(Starting Zip: 89044) The M to Jean is a 30 mile round trip ride. We normally have to face a headwind on our way to Jean, so we start as a group and break into separate pacelines. It's pretty much an uphill ride too. We take a quick rest/regroup at the Jean Gas Station and then we head back. From there, we have some downhill fun most of the way back to the M. SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS DEMOCRACY LOOP Option: For those of you who want to add on some more mileage and some pretty challenging climbs, you can add on the Southern Highlands Democracy Loop option. I believe this will add another 15 miles to the ride, but it's a really pretty, scenic ride through a nice neighborhood in Southern Highlands/Henderson. Total ride distance will be 45 miles total if you do both the Jean and Democracy Loop option.

Then, we ride through the park to the Visitors Center road and up Mouse's tank (one steep little 1/4 mile hill) and into the rolling hills of White Domes. There's a picnic area at White Domes so you can pack a light snack to eat while you re-group. If you run out of water, the Visitors Center has a spigot outside the building on the left side. This is one of my favorite rides... but don't do it alone and NEVER in the heat of the summer!!! It gets way too hot at Valley of Fire. Also, a SAG support vehicle is highly suggested on this route (for less experienced riders or in the summer heat), as it is very deserted and if you have a mechanical, you're stuck. NOTE: Some roads have little to no shoulder. Please use caution when riding and watch out for vehicle traffic.

Also, a SAG support vehicle is highly suggested on this route, as it is very deserted and if you have a mechanical, you're stuck. NOTE: Some roads have little to no shoulder. Please use caution when riding and watch out for vehicle traffic.

This is a great place to stop if you need it because there are shaded picnic tables, a bathroom and then of course you get to take pics while you're there of the beautiful scenery. Exit out of the scenic overlook by turning right and proceed on the 159 until you get to the town of Blue Diamond. This is a sleepy little town that has two things every cyclist needs: a bike shop for any repair/mechanical needs (Bike Outpost) and a General Store that offers free ice for your water bottles, snacks to refuel and a restroom. Lots of cyclists hang out there and use this as a 15-30 minute rest stop. Once you leave Blue Diamond, turn right again onto the 159 and head the whole way to the end of the road. Turn right onto the 160 / Blue Diamond Hwy and ride on that strip of road until you get to the first right turn. Avery. This will loop you back to the 159 where you will then take a left into the town of Blue Diamond to rest up at the General store and hit the bathroom and refuel before heading back the way you came.

(Starting Zip: 89134) This is the route we will take on the 2009 Halloween ride.

There's normally a band playing downtown in the evening and lots of people! You may have to walk your bike once you get there. This is more of a tourist ride...to take in the oldest section of the Las Vegas strip. On the way back, be prepared to ride uphill all the way back to the Suncoast.

Some decent hills along the way...one long pull as you enter the Torrey Pines Area...about 1-1/2 to 2 miles of a good climb...but it is fun on the way down....This route is definitely safer on the way back as it is very busy on the out route due to business & beach parking along the way...but the view is definitely worth the work

(Starting Zip: 89117) This is an easy 5 mile one way trip starting from Desert Breeze to Kellogg Zaher Park. Kellogg Zaher has a nice 2.75 mile bike path loop you can ride around to do some training.

(Starting Zip: 89115) You can start anywhere in Las Vegas if you choose, but the route starts on Las Vegas BLVD and Nellis, and you just head North on Las Vegas BLVD til..pretty much til whenever you want to turn around, I turn around after the first factory, but its a decent road and it just heads up the hill out of the valley towards Mesquite area, If you stop at the first factory its a good 30 mile ride there and back.

(Starting Zip: 89012) From Saxby's or JT's to Lake Las Vegas and back.
Procyclery's Holiday Route
(Starting Zip: 89117) This is the route for the ProCyclery Annual Holiday Ride. It wasn't 10-15 miles like they told me in the store, it was actually closer to 27 miles.
River Mountain Loop
(Starting Zip: 89002) Loop from Henderson / Equestrian Park around Lake Mead through Boulder City back to Henderson.
Alternate to this route would be to follow the River Mountain Trail starting from Equestrian Park. Some portions of the paved trail are not completed yet.

Lake Mead to Charleston
(Starting Zip: 89015) Out is pretty good downhill and coming back will test your hill climbing.
6th to 6th
(Starting Zip: 89104) A Route that i do sometimes
Mesa Park to Blue Diamond Bike Outpost #2
(Starting Zip: 89135) This is an easier route that does NOT include the Red Rock Scenic Loop. I also chose to route you through the side roads of Summerlin versus taking Town Center to Charleston. This way, there's less traffic and an easier entrance into Red Rock.
Spring Valley Neighborhood Ride
(Starting Zip: 89103) Another ride around the Spring Valley area.
Spring Valley Loop
(Starting Zip: 89103) This is a casual loop ride you can take with your family or just use it as a training loop for your spinerval exercises. The only thing about this ride is crossing Rainbow...so I would recommend if you are taking a family ride that you do it on a Sunday morning when there is less traffic.
Sunday Recovery Ride
(Starting Zip: 89117) This is a ride I sometimes do if I want to recover from a challenging ride I did the day before. I call it a recovery ride because it's pretty much downhill all the way to Mandalay Bay, then you can just work out a steady cadence on the way back up. You can park your car at the starting point which is Desert Breeze Park.
The Lakes and Summerlin #3
(Starting Zip: 89117) Another way to vary your route along The Lakes and Summerlin.
The Lakes, Summerlin & Southwest Las Vegas #1
(Starting Zip: 89117) This ride starts at the picturesque area of The Lakes. If you're not familiar with this area, cross streets are Sahara and Crystal Water Way. Then I take you through Summerlin and Southwest Las Vegas and back to the Lakes area. This is a nice ride, has a little bit of everything. Downhills, uphills and flats.
The Lakes and Summerlin #2
(Starting Zip: 89117) Another great ride around the Lakes and Summerlin area.
The Lakes and Summerlin #1
(Starting Zip: 89117) This ride starts at the Lakes area and heads into Summerlin and back.
SW Las Vegas to Blue Diamond / Red Rock
(Starting Zip: 89117) This is an alternate route that has much less traffic than going straight down Durango. You can start at the Starbucks on Hualapai & Desert Inn - 3370 S. Hualapai Way.
Red Rock to Downtown
(Starting Zip: 89135) This is a route that most of you should be familiar with. It's a straight shoot down(hill) on Alta all the way to downtown...then a back up(hill) to Red Rock. The cool thing about this route is the bike path has built in sensors for cyclists so the light will change faster if you land on it. (I will normally ride down to Neonopolis or Golden Nugget, then turn around and come back.)
Southwest Las Vegas #1
(Starting Zip: 89117) I like to ride around the Southwest section of town. This is a great ride with some challenging hills and good scenery. You can start at the Starbuck's on Hualapai and Desert Inn.
Desert Shores #1
(Starting Zip: 89128) This is a pretty easy ride along the Desert Shores Community. Great for Sunday family rides or just casual recreational rides.
(Starting Zip: 89108) fairly easy riding
Red Rock to Blue Diamond
(Starting Zip: 89135) This route is a popular weekend ride here in Vegas. Normally cyclists will meet up at Albertson's or
Starbuck's on Charleston. For this route, I will start it at the Albertson's which is fairly closer to the Red Rock Entrance. We will ride to the Bike Outpost in Blue Diamond. There you can fuel up, rest and then ride back. The return hill is pretty challenging but it's a beautiful ride!!
The Lakes #2 - Easy Casual Ride
(Starting Zip: 89117) This is a great route that is easy to do and perfect for beginners. You can park at the 'A' marker inside the parking lot if you are driving here. The scenery is pretty and would make for a great biking date as well. :)
Red Rock Scenic Loop
(Starting Zip: 89124) This is the Red Rock scenic loop inside the Red Rock Visitors Center. If you ride in on a bike, you do not have to pay an entrance fee.
Commute to some casino on Silverado Ranch
(Starting Zip: 89030) Much older area of town. Start at Owens and Mojave, South on Mojave. Cut through Sunset Park to Eastern, south to Warm springs. West to Bermuda, and on to Silverado Ranch.
Tropical and Losee
(Starting Zip: 89081) The start is at Tropical and Losee. Head North on Tropical till you get to Tenaya. This is an up and back. The ride is about 8 miles one way with a slight up hill. If you take a right on Tenaya, and go about another half mile you are right next to South West Bicycle. There is hardly any traffic on this road. There are also spots where the shoulder of the road is nice and wide.
******Also this is the 89081 Zip code, the website did not see this as a valid zip code so I had to put in a zip code it reconized! *******
The Lakes to Sun City #1
(Starting Zip: 89117) This is one of the best routes I stumbled across one early morning last summer. If you like a good downhill, this route has it.
Route starts at the Einstein Bagels at 9031 W. Sahara, then goes thru the Lakes, to Town Center, to Anasazi up to Sun City. Then the downhill thru Sun City. WATCH OUT FOR GOLF CARTS WHILE FLYING DOWN THE HILL. Once you get to the bottom of the hill, turn right onto Del Webb, straight across Lake Mead then into the back roads of Summerlin and back thru the Lakes.
The Lakes #1 - Training & Race Circuit
(Starting Zip: 89117) This is a looping route that is great for training, spinerval exercises, and is also used as a racing circuit throughout the cycling season.
I have created the route to start inside the loop. If you are driving to it, you can park on the side roads.
