Viva Bike Vegas 2011 Set for October

Time is running out for cyclists to cash in and save with the early registration discount for Viva Bike Vegas 2011. The early registration discount will end on May 14 and registration costs will increase to $100. Fabulous Las Vegas is again calling cycling enthusiasts in Nevada and across the country to join the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) for Viva Bike Vegas 2011 on Saturday, October 15, 2011.

This year, all riders will have the unique opportunity to bike the bright lights of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip with a police escort. The fourth annual cycling event will feature three spectacular routes for cyclists of all skill levels, including a 103-mile century ride as well as 60-mile and 17-mile routes. Century riders will travel from the Las Vegas Strip to the vistas of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and the scenic trails near Lake Mead National Park.

During the event, riders can ante up and play a few hands of poker to benefit the After-School All-Stars Las Vegas. Entry fee is $25 per person/hand with the option to buy "bonus cards" for $5 each (limit is 2 bonus cards per hand).

After the ride, relax at the festival site with live entertainment and cheer on fellow returning riders from the RTC Viva Bike Vegas Beer Garden. Proceeds from RTC Viva Bike Vegas 2011 will benefit three local charities: Nevada Cancer Institute, After-School All-Stars Las Vegas and Nevada Child Seekers.

Clients who register early can save--any of the three routes cost only $85 until May 14. Pricing for all three rides is as follows:
