Wetlands Park Trail, Flamingo Arroyo Trail, and Las Vegas Wash Trail
Wetlands Park Trail is moderate, but the other 2 trails are easy. (Difficulty: Easy)
Mark's Sketchy Ride - Las Vegas Wash Trail
(Starting Zip: 89130) This is a ride that starts from McTodd's McDonald's on Lone Mountain and Decatur. Takes you down the Las Vegas Wash Trail to the Flamingo Arroyo Trail and on the East side of town. It's best not to do this alone since the bike paths are isolated and there are some busy streets on this route that I would only ride on a Sunday morning when there is little traffic. Take a friend and enjoy the ride. NOTE: There seems to be a lot of debris and glass so make sure you have good puncture resistant tires on your bike too. (Difficulty: Easy)
Craig - Gun Range - Grand Canyon
(Starting Zip: 89130) 35 miler starting behind McDonalds (Craig/US-95) make your way to W. Alexander and then to N. Jones. Left on Grand Teton Dr. to Thorn Blvd, then take N.

M Casino, 26.5 Mile Hills Route
(Starting Zip: 89044) Start location is the M Casino. Then spend some quality time going through Madera Canyon, Anthem, and 7 Hills. Finish by riding the paved path that runs along St Rose back to the M. Plenty of parks for water refills and a Starbucks sits merely 3 miles from the finish line. For some reason the .GPX file generated by MapMyRide doesn't contain the amount of climb but it's in the neighborhood of 1640 ft (Difficulty: Moderate)
Reverse Red Rock Outer Perimeter - Maule & Fort Apache
(Starting Zip: 89117) This is a fun ride from Summerlin into Red Rock going in reverse... entering in from the 160 instead of W. Charleston. This particular route is a good one in the early summer morning hours. Fort Apache is the main area to be careful of as the road narrows down into a 2 lane road with little shoulder. Instead of Fort Apache, you could ride down Durango or Buffalo. Buffalo being the least traveled, but then that adds more miles to the ride. Your choice. Either way, fun ride today with the crew. Start/end at the Starbucks on Hualapai, just South of Desert Inn. (Difficulty: Moderate)
New Harmony to Parowan, UT Loop
(Starting Zip: 84757) Great ride from New Harmony through Cedar City and back through Parowan, UT. Normally temps are about 20 degrees cooler than Vegas. On this ride, of course they had a hotter than normal temperature day, and about 20mph steady winds (not in the forecast) that gusted to 32mph on our return giving us a head & crosswind for about 30+ miles! However, the route & company made up for it. This is the 3rd time I've gone up to ride in New Harmony and only the first time with this weather experience. Normally it's cooler and cloudier... at least I hope it's normally that. LOL! Fun ride. NOTE: If you take a group, keep in mind there is very limited parking and you'll want to carpool as many people as you can since the starting location is a Texaco gas station and not really a parking lot. (Difficulty: Moderate)
Centennial Center Romp
(Starting Zip: 89149) Start at Centennial Center in NW Las Vegas. Up Tropical and over to Hualapai. Down Grand Teton, over to Racel. Around Silverstone, up to gun range wind back to start via Tenaya to Azure. (Difficulty: Moderate)
Saturday Short and Sweet Southern Highlands to Henderson
(Starting Zip: 89141) Fun ride today everyone! Loved the tailwind on our backs down St. Rose. Headwind on the way back? That's a different story. lol! Rolling hills and beautiful scenery. For anyone who hasn't done this route, there are a few places crossing over the I-15 and 215 freeways to watch out for. Other than that, smooth sailing. (Difficulty: Moderate)
Potosi and Lovell Canyon from Blue Diamond
Climb, climb, climb! The climb up to Potosi is on the 160 and is one long (about 10 miles) climb. Stop at the Fire Station, refill your water bottles from their hose (pretty good water). Beware, the road you turn on to get into Lovell Canyon is a rough road. It's paved, but very bumpy and if there has been rain, there will be gravel and rocks. That road has more climbing, but there is some reprieve as well. Once you get to the end, you have a few more big climbs to get out of the canyon. Be extremely careful making a left turn onto the 160. You have a good 3 mile climb to get back to that Fire Station - and then it's all downhill. Great ride to get away from traffic! (Difficulty: Hard)

This route has a little more climbing, but follows along the same route as the Intense & Fitness groups, but breaks off at Banburry Cross.

City of Henderson Bike Swap Route with BLV

Starts at Cornerstone Park, we'll head to Gibson and then jump on the UPRR bike path and take that path all the way to Nevada State College. 96% of this ride is on a non-motorized bike path! Come on out! (Difficulty: Easy)
215 Beltway Excursion
(Starting Zip: 89135) Started from the Dunkin' Donuts on W. Charleston and Desert Foothills. This route takes you up the new sections of the 215 Beltway, North of Far Hills. This will make a great addition when it's completed. Also, a great path to ride if we want to ride to Paiute or Northwest Las Vegas. On the way back from the excursion, we decided to ride all the way South on the Beltway trail, so this route shows the entire stretch we can ride at this point in time. (Difficulty: Moderate)

You'll work your way from Southern Highlands through the industrial area in the center of town, through UNLV, to across and behind the Las Vegas strip, ultimately ending up onto Boulder Highway in Henderson to the bike path off College drive and back to Southern Highlands. It's just under 50 miles round trip and it's fun. Due to the amount of traffic on these roads, I would suggest only doing this route on a Sunday. I gave this a moderate rating due to the streets you'll take and traffic you may encounter. (Difficulty: Moderate)
CBT to M Casino Alternate Route
(Starting Zip: 89135) For anyone who is coming from Summerlin and needs/wants to get to the M Casino. Many of these roads have little traffic and are more bike friendly. On the way back, there are spots on Decatur and Warm Springs that narrow into a single lane with little shoulder, that's the worst part of the ride... but those sections are normally pretty short. Great ride for a small group or anyone needing to commute from one side of town to the other. I chose moderate level of difficulty due to the roads narrowing which would intimidate a recreational bike path rider. (Difficulty: Moderate)

Ended up on Harmon and eventually Flamingo, where we rode to Boulder Hwy. Took College to the Union Pacific or Reunion Trail (thanks Raf for showing me.)

S. Highlands to GVR/Sunridge Heights to Work

There's packed dirt, there's sand, there's gravel (and as you ride more on McCullough trail, the gravel thickens). There are neat dips in the road with flat rock surfaces to roll over.

Park to Park Pedal in Caliente, NV
One of the most unique and beautiful centuries in Nevada. (Difficulty: Hard)
RMT From Railroad Pass Casino
(Starting Zip: 89002) At 34.4 Miles, this is one of the best routes in the Las Vegas area. The trail is completely self-contained, and though you must share it with pedestrians, there are no motor vehicles to contend with. There are several short climbs right as you enter the trail followed by a long straight that slowly descends to the Equestrian trail-head (a perfect warm up). After Equestrian there is a moderate climb followed by another long snaking descent that brings you to the "Three Sisters". These short steep climbs are best tackled out of the saddle and pushing hard. A steep descent will bring you to a gradual climb along side Lake Meade Blvd. Followed by a moderately technical descent that gives way to long, rolling terrain as you make your way to the lowest point near the Lake Mead Marina. Just after mile18, begins a challenging 9 mile climb that crests just below the mountain bike park at Bootleg Canyon, rewarding you with wonderful views of Boulder City, and Lake Mead. After that a well earned, fast descent will bring you back to Railroad Pass and the end of the loop (Difficulty: Moderate)

I started this at an intersection where there really isn't any 'starting place'. It's just near my house so I started it from there. If you wanted to start at a location with restrooms, there's a Smith's shopping center on Somerset and Southern Highlands Pkwy. You could start there, but it would only be about a 38-40 mile trip from there. (Difficulty: Moderate)

MOUNTAIN BIKE: Mustang to Duckie Tree Loop
Starting at the 160 Late Night trailhead, you'll start to ascend some small, rocky terrain, on the Mustang trail. Take the 2nd right turn, staying on the Mustang trail where you will have some rollers and a couple 'stepping' rocks. Go through the cactus/yucca tree 'gate' and be prepared for a smaller technical hill that if you go to the right, you can go smoothly through it. To the left, is a little bit of a drop-off, but the more experienced riders love to fly over that part. Next, it's all fun, twisting downhill until you get to the fire road. Now, instead of taking the first right turn back onto the mustang trail, you'll take the second right, which is an extension of the mustang loop, but that heads toward the Landmine loop. You'll cross over 2 fire road sections...twisting and winding on a tightly turning trail until you get to a fork in the road. Take the 90 degree right turn (don't go to the left) and experience some fun technical downhill with stepping stones on the way up. Work your way over to the duckie tree and then head back crossing the fire road and back onto Mustang loop for the finish into the 160 late night trailhead parking lot. Very fun route.

You can rest at the scenic picnic area, catch your breath and head back the same way you came. Climbing out of the Valley of Fire, past the ranger station exit.

River Mountains Loop Trail x2
(Starting Zip: 89015) The RMT is a great training loop. It's about 35 miles per loop and on this particular Garmin file, I did the loop twice that day. However, you get an idea of the elevations, distance, etc... from this route. You can park at the Fresh & Easy Market at 1400 South Boulder Highway, Henderson, NV 89015 and then enter onto the trail at the end of Equestrian. (Difficulty: Moderate)
Lakeshore-Northshore to Callville Bay
(Starting Zip: 89005) Ride through beautiful Lake Mead National Park. Starting address is the Alan Bible Visitor Center located on Lakeshore Road. What to expect... On Lakeshore, there is a wider shoulder and rolling hills. Nice view of the Lake, light to medium automobile traffic. On Northshore, the shoulder narrows, there is a bit more debris and there are rumble strips. Also, you will encounter wide load trucks/trailers hauling boats on this road so it can be a bit scary. Road to Callville Bay is mostly downhill. This is great when you're heading there, but on the way back...well, you get the picture! ;) Make sure you stop to rehydrate at the convenience store at the bottom of Callville Bay as that is one of the only places to rehydrate when you're riding inside Lake Mead National Park. Ride Difficulty... Not for beginners. Very challenging terrain. Advanced Level Ride. (Difficulty: Hard)
Starbucks Hualapai to Top of Potosi Returning via Red Rock 159

Then, we're off to the old west town of Goodsprings. There's a water spigot at the Pioneer Saloon which we use as our halfway rest stop. Then, back to Jean and M Casino. NOTE: There always seems to be a headwind when we do this ride. lol. (Difficulty: Moderate)

Sunday Social Ride Around Summerlin, South & Central Las Vegas
(Starting Zip: 89117) I did this ride with Lynetta, Ian and Gina. We were scouting for some new routes for our rides. It was fun just to ride around and relax...not push the pace. There are some good streets to ride on and I will expand on this route at some point in the future. The starting location is just the address I turned my Garmin on...I forgot to do that at the start of the ride. There's no real starting location store or anything like that. Just the street I was riding on. (Difficulty: Moderate)
