SOUTHERN NEVADA’S LONGEST RUNNING BICYCLE EVENT
The 2020 Tour de Summerlin will mark Summerlin’s 20th year running! This event was and still is made possible through the encouragement and support of the beautiful Masterplan of Summerlin and the Howard Hughes Corporation. Back in 2000 Summerlin set out to create the most ‘rider-friendly’ bicycling event in the Southwest, and they’ve stuck to that mission year after year after year.
One of the most unique aspects of the Tour de Summerlin is the abundant amount of biking lanes that are used throughout the different routes. Summerlin’s #1 commitment has always been rider safety and utilizing miles and miles of biking lanes creates a ‘rider-friendly’ experience. It’s also hard to beat the winning combination of Summerlin’s man-made amenities and Mother Nature. This event shows off the active lifestyle for which this area is known for with scenic backdrops that make it one of the best places to bicycle in the entire Southwest.
This year’s start and finish line will again be located at beautiful Downtown Summerlin. This is the ultimate destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment in southern Nevada and sure to create a dynamic and engaging experience for the entire community. Invite your family, friends, and supporters to come out and enjoy a day of shopping and dining before heading over to the finish line to cheer you on!
The Tour de Summerlin will continue to offer three different ride distances: 80, 40 and 20 miles. With it being so early in the biking season (April), it’s important to maintain routes that are still challenging enough for the most serious riders, but also attainable for those riders who are looking to push themselves to a higher level or complete a long-distance for the first time as the weather begins to warm. The Tour de Summerlin is constantly striving to enhance and improve the ride experiences. This involves evaluating current and future road construction, possible safety issues and minimizing stoplight and stop sign constrictions.
