Our start/finish for the 101 mile event and Fun Ride is at Discovery Children’s Museum at the Smith Center.  The start lines for the 62- and 25 mile events are along the 101 mile route.  All events finish at Discovery Children’s Museum.  Cyclists who want to be in the “platinum” category in El Tour de Tucson (November) could qualify by registering and riding in the 101 mile event.  In El Tour de Tucson platinum line up is for cyclists who can ride the century in under 5 hours (men) or 5:30 (women).  Platinum times  for Viva Bike Vegas will be announced at a later date.
Viva Bike Vegas this year benefits Safe Nest, Discovery Children’s Museum,  Easter Seals of Nevada, and the League of America Bicyclists.  Perimeter Bicycling hopes to raise $25,000 – $50,000 for these nonprofit organizations in 2014.  In the next two years, Perimeter Bicycling hopes to have 10-20 different charitable agencies benefiting from this event.

This year we are not fully electronically able to accept contributions for these agencies on our online registration.  For cyclists who will do fundraising, we ask that your collected contributions be mailed to Perimeter Bicycling on or before September 5, 2014 or turn them in at El Tour Expo/Packet Pickup at The LINQ on The Strip in Las Vegas on September 12th,  which is also the last day to register.
