Ride to UNLV Day had three participants. Everyone had a good time, a safe ride, and we decided to do it again from a different location. We are also working on the bike wrenching day. Look for more events coming soon!

Bike to UNLV Day is Next Wednesday

Such a simple idea. Elegant even. We are going to lead a ride from semi-bike-friendly Green Valley to UNLV. There is a route that is safe, convenient, maybe even enjoyable, but few people know about it. Thus, in an effort to encourage bike ridership AND preserve life, we will show it to whomever would like to join us. Meet at the corner of Windmill and Pecos at 8 am. The 40-minute ride will depart shortly thereafter, and we'll get to campus before 9 am. At that point, people can grab a coffee, shower, or prep themselves for a 10 am class.

Bike Polo is Back on Wednesdays

Bike Polo was a mess of success last week during Interbike. For tuesday's tournament, we had maybe 50 people in attendance (mostly spectators)and three hours of solid play. On thursday at the Crits at Mandalay Bay, a second polo tournament popped up with much more out-of-town talent providing the entertainment. Hopefully we'll get some pictures up.
This week, its back to our regularly scheduled match, starting at 7 pm, in the EPA parking lot right next to MPE. See you there.

The Great Interbike Polo Tourney is Tuesday

Imagine people from all over the country descending upon our little city to abuse it for all it's worth. Well, that's happening this week as Interbike, the biggest bicycle trade show in the US is in town.
We'd really like to show these yahoos a good time, so we're hosting a Polo Tournament. And its happening on tuesday, not our regular night. And its happening in a different location, across the street from the UNLV sign at Yayo Taco.
Be there.

Bike to UNLV with Rebel Bikes

The date for the first "Bike to UNLV Day" is set for wednesday, Oct 7. The idea is that there are a few safe and efficient routes to get to UNLV via bicycle. We will be highlighting the first, which connects Henderson/Green Valley to campus by leading a bike ride for people who are bike-commute curious. The official starting point is the Vons parking lot on the SW corner of Windmill and Pecos. We meet at 8, for an arrival on UNLV campus by 9 am, in time to shower/coffee for the 10 am classes. The route looks something like this:
