Peloton Details: On Sunday, April 23rd, there will be a group ride up the Red Rocks loop, West of Las Vegas. All interested TechCon attendees are welcome to join. Please contact Philip Schoene  <pschoene@pbs.org>  if you are planning to join the ride. We must reserve bikes in advance. Please send me a preferred bike size and pedal request (flat, SPD, Look, or bring your own). 

Total Ride Cost: approximately $53 for bike rental, plus $3 entry fee at Red Rocks.

Ride Description: The ride will start at Las Vegas Cyclery, 10575 Discovery Drive where we rent our bikes. From there we ride up to W. Charleston Blvd., and then head West out into the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area up State Highway  159. We climb up rolling hills to the Red Rock Scenic Drive. Entrance fee $3 per cyclist. The 13-mile Scenic Drive road includes steep climbs past the iconic red rock canyon cliff faces and winding downhill rides through desert habitat. The loop returns to State Highway 159 and we then return back East down West Charleston Boulevard  to the Cyclery. Total ride distance is approximately 30 miles. Elevation gain, 2,000 ft.

Time and Place: We will gather at the Caesars Palace registration lobby entrance at 9:00 am Sunday morning and Uber out to the Las Vegas Cyclery. Expect to return by mid-afternoon.

Bike rentals: Half day rate for the road rental runs $49 plus tax for a Specialized Roubaix / Tarmac (Men) and Specialized Ruby / Amira (Women) so, for a total of roughly $53 per bike. An $8 insurance covering $1,000 of damage can also be purchased additionally for peace of mind. A signed release is required for each rider.

We must reserve bikes in advance. Please send me a preferred bike size and pedal request (flat, SPD, Look, or bring your own). Rental includes a helmet, a seat bag with a spare tube, tire levers tool, hand pump and a multi-tools wrench. Sizing info below:
