LVVBC North Las Vegas Century Pedal to the Medal + Win a Free Registration

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.

  10. A trifecta; Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, Special Olympics, and the newly formed Southern Nevada Bicycle Coalition – plus local…sounds great

  11. Looking forward to this ride!

  12. Would love to come back to Vegas to do this! Hope everyone’s doing well…

  13. I’m going to be there all the way from Rwanda! If I can do it, anyone can.

  14. I love coming down to Vegas to do bike rides.

  15. I haven’t done this ride
    Would love to!!

  16. Today I saw a kid struggling with the bags he was carrying, so I went over to help him. Then, out of nowhere, a bunch of gang bangers showed up. They apparently knew the kid and they shook my hand and were like, “Ayyy, thanks for helping out our little homie. If you ever need anything, you let us know. Ain’t nobody gonna mess with you.” Then they taught me this elaborate handshake.

    And that’s how I accidentally joined a Mexican gang.

  17. I went with them on their first training ride, great bunch of people! Fun!

  18. Already signed up. Should be a good ride!

  19. Missed this ride because of park to park last year but want to do the 62.

  20. I’ll be going regardless, not sure if 30 or 60- the summer heat has kept me from any progress on miles and climbs.
