On Friday morning of EVE Vegas, Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP, and I will be riding the Red Rock Canyon Loop in Las Vegas. If you are a cycling enthusiast, you are welcome to join us!
This isn’t a hard ride, but you need a road bike or gravel bike. A beach cruiser or small folding bike isn’t going to be a reasonable choice.
When: Friday, October 25th, at 8AM – we are hoping to clip in and ride
What: It’s a short loop of Red Rock Canyon. Slow grade up for the first half and a sweet decent back.
Here is the route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31240188
Where: We will meet at the Red Rock Canyon Visitor Center in the parking lot.
Address is 1000 Scenic Loop Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89161
Caveats: Several things have to go right to pull this off, and if something unforeseen happens, this may get called off at the last minute.
Q: I have more questions.
A: Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: My beach cruiser is awesome, can I bring it?
Q: Why isn’t is a longer ride?
A: We looked into a longer ride, but herding a group of people through Vegas morning rush hour traffic that haven’t ridden together before seemed like a idea likely to end in tears.
Q: Can I rent a bike somewhere?
A: Probably, but I’ve never rented in Vegas before. You’ll have to research on your own. Sorry…
Q: Why is is called Red Rock Canyon? I thought Las Vegas was a desert.
