Vegas Bike Store supports the local cycling community with accessories and parts, bike services and repairs, and virtual training. Bike gurus tune up well-ridden two-wheelers with a 10-point checkup (a $79.95 value), cleaning and lubing chains, tightening bolts, and adjusting brakes and gears. Once the stem and headset have been checked, each penny-farthing will receive a complete wash to ensure its continued well-being.
Though not primarily thought of as a cyclist’s town, Las Vegas’ generally temperate climate and long, flat roads make for a perfect day of pedaling. Riders can be found in nearly any neighborhood throughout the valley, and when those cyclists need a tune-up or new part, many head to Broken Spoke Bikes. Located in Summerlin, Broken Spoke offers first-hand basic, advanced and complete overhauls for bikes in need, and keeps a steady supply of new bikes on their racks as well, for anyone looking to get started in the world of cycling – or riders ready for an upgrade. Beyond the Spandex-wearing road racers, Broken Spoke offers services, apparel and parts for BMX enthusiasts, mountain bikers and daily riders as well. Racks and shelves are filled with water bottles, socks, nutrition supplements and more, making each stop at Broken Spoke the perfect opportunity to refit yourself for the next ride.
Opened since 1984, Pro Cyclery on Charleston Boulevard in Las Vegas prides itself in excellent customer service, while providing several maintenance and repair services to avid cyclists and around-town riders alike. Typical mechanical services include basic tune-ups, drive train overhauls, complete breakdowns and ground-up fixes and wheel builds, to name a few. This large, open bicycle shop also fits bikes for each customer who purchases one, to ensure that every unique individual has the perfect and most comfortable bike. From wheels to several styles of bikes, and helmets to car racks, Pro Cyclery houses a wide display of products that meet every cyclist’s needs. And if you’re looking for the low-slung space, just keep an eye out for the iron-welded bike frame that protrudes from the roof – or the various colorful cycling banners and posters that hang from the windows.
A typical Eldorado lake bed tour takes customers age six and up speeding through vast, velocity-friendly desert sand atop a trusted all-terrain vehicle. Young riders can thrash land grains on one of the youth ATV models as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Although patrons are granted opportunities to ogle the formerly subaquatic terrain, the tour primarily strives to quench needs for speed with a full two hours of riding time. Tour guides refuel amateur gauchos with included liquid libations.
