SOUTHERN NEVADA’S LONGEST RUNNING BICYCLE EVENT
The 2017 Tour de Summerlin will mark our 16th year running and we are so appreciative for all the sponsors, riders and volunteers who have supported our event over the past 15 years. 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 2002 we set out to create the most ‘rider friendly’ bicycling event in the southwest, and we’ve stuck to that mission year after year after year. We are extremely proud to be partnering with the Chron's & Colitis Foundation of America this year:
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation (CCF) is the largest voluntary non-profit health organization dedicated to finding cures for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). CCF’s mission is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults who suffer from these diseases. The Foundation works to fulfill its mission by funding research, providing educational resources for patients and their families, medical professionals, and the public, and furnishing supportive services for those afflicted with IBD.

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. Our #1 commitment has always been rider safety and utilizing miles and miles of biking lanes creates a ‘rider friendly’ experience. Its 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.
We are very excited to announce that we will continue our start and finish at the newly completed Downtown Summerlin. This will be the ultimate destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in Southern Nevada and sure to create a dynamic and engaging experience for the entire community.
Mark your calendars for April 22nd, 2017 for this years event. We are in the process of finalizing our routes and permits for this year's event. Routes will be similar to previous years with minor changes due to construction or obstacles. Routes will be posted in the coming weeks. We are constantly working on enhancing and improving our ride experiences. This involves evaluating current and future road construction, possible safety issues and minimizing stoplight and stop sign constrictions. Please make sure you are following us on Facebook and Twitter to receive the most current and up-to-date information. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s event!
Routes are currently being reviewed for permit approval and we will post on our website ASAP.
