Las Vegas: Singletrack in Sin City

Singletracks, Fall 2000, Story by Tom Greene, Greater Boston NEMBA

Las Vegas: Land of Elvis, a mini-reconstruction of New York city, exploding and sinking pirate ships, erupting volcanoes, white tigers, moving sidewalks, shotgun wedding chapels, and all-you-can-eat crab leg buffets.

There's no shortage of things to do in this town. But in the daylight hours, the sun beats down on the Vegas strip and heats the concrete and asphalt to temperatures equaling that of a blast furnace. The monolithic hotel-casinos which are mind numbingly illuminated at night begin to look fake and contrived in the pale mid-day sun.

Besides checking out the leaks in the Hoover Dam what else is there to do in Vegas during the day? If you are into trail riding Vegas is home to some serious desert singletrack. On our recent visit to Sin City, Reenie and I were jonesing to ride it.

Mountain Biking off the Beaten Path

Las Vegas Review Journal, May 20, 1999, Story and photos by Brian E. Clark

John Egbert makes no bones about his bicycling preferences. If he has his druthers, he'll head his mountain bike off the pavement and onto the bumpy, single-track routes that proliferate the Red Valley northwest of Las Vegas.

On a recent Saturday morning, Egbert was leading a group of riders on a two-hour tour that starts at a pull-off on Highway 160 and goes north toward some imposing sandstone spires and then to a vista called Black Velvet Overlook.
