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.
Vegas Bike Store culls a gleaming array of two-wheeled transports alongside stylish riding gear and focused repairs to help riders stay safe and mobile. Masi, Bianchi, and Marin bicycles yearning for a home line the store’s interior, waiting for a bike-store associate to match them with an owner in need. The sales staff ensures that riders mount their ideal metal steed by performing a measuring session atop a virtual bike-training simulator, which catalogs the user’s riding style as he or she speeds through faux mountain ranges or county-fair potato-sack races. Meanwhile, bicycles ravaged by roadways find solace in the hands of an experienced bike technician, who replaces cracked parts with brand-new substitutes and rejuvenates stressed systems with adjustment and lube services. Vegas Bike Store crew members periodically venture from the shop’s confines to lead groups through real mountain landscapes in monthly rides and host riding classes to bolster attendants’ skills.
The Wild Thing Triathlon is a little different from your typical three-sport endurance race. For one, it's designed for both and kids to complete. That's why it boasts two courses: a longer one and a scaled-down shorter one accessible to kids age 3 and older. Another creative touch? It progresses backwards?running comes first, followed by biking, then a current-assisted swim in Wet 'n' Wild water park's lazy river. For an extra dose of kid-friendliness, contestants who prefer not to swim can wade too, although sending a stunt double down the river is not allowed.

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.
