Las Vegas Gran Fondo


Location: Las Vegas Cyclery 10575 Discovery Drive
Las Vegas, NV


Las Vegas Gran Fondo – 76 miles with about 6,300′ climbing. You’ll enjoy a nice, flat warm-up before you hang a left on Charleston, which becomes Highway 159. It’s a gentle climb to the right turn onto the Scenic Drive heading into Red Rock Canyon. From here the climbing begins. It starts gradually and then pitches up a bit as the scenery becomes more and more beautiful! At the top of the climb you’ll enjoy the view and drinks and snacks at the first checkpoint.

You’ll climb a bit more before you reach the summit – then it’s a wonderful, rewarding descent down to Highway 159 where you’ll make a right. The road rolls gently along Highway 159 all the way to the right turn to Blue Diamond, where you’ll find the second checkpoint. Then you head back to Highway 159 again until you come to the t-intersection at Highway 160, where you’ll turn right.

Here the climbing begins again. About 9 miles of climbing to the summit of Mt. Potosi, a descent to the aid station and a shorter climb back up. Then (mostly) downhill to the finish.
