    This looks intresting....
    CyborgQueen-what is the registration cost? I did not look. I will have to go talk to DH about this. We might do a weekend in Vegas, how would that be?

    Sure! There are three different registrations, and all require $15 charitable contributions, you can give more if you want, and it's included in the total cost.

    If you register BEFORE SEPT 4th: Total cost

    35 miles - $60
    62 miles - $70
    118 miles - $70

    If you register AFTER Sept 4th TO Sept 25, Total costs:

    35 miles - $65
    62 miles - $75
    118 miles - $75

    If you register AFTER Sept 26th to Oct 9th, total cost:

    35 miles - $75
    62 miles - $85
    118 miles - $85


    To me, that seem to be a pretty dang good deal. The ride will have police escort, aid stations at good intervals, and seem to have lots of goodies.

    If you're new/kinda new to cycling, REI at Boca Park and Henderson is offering training rides every Saturdays FOR FREE! So you can ask them questions, or any help you need with your bike. Lmk if you want more information. I go to the one in Henderson, I like it a lot. ALSO - both REI places are offering FREE Bike clinics - talks about First Aid, Tire Changing, Tire maintenance, nutrition, etc etc...all Sponsored by RTC. Again, lmk if you want more information about REI classes (although, they do plug in to 'buy' their products...don't feel like you have to, but it's good to know all the various products out there).

    See ya there!

    CQ- Thankyou for your help in the explaination of the costs. Between my DH and I, we figured it would be over or about $200 and that is just for reservations. Does not include a casino/hotel/room to stay, food, gas and a 2 hr drive. So it was a nice thought. I guess we will not be going after all.

    Oh I thought you *lived* in Vegas due to "Red Rock", my misunderstanding.

    This ride is a local charity ride to promote people to commute with bikes and using buses (all RTC buses have bike racks). Hence why it's probably cheap.
