Who: Riders who are comfortable traveling on a variety of public roads from highways, National Park roads, and industrial side streets. All types of motorcycles welcome
How: Safe and sane cruise suitable for most riders. A “close approximation “of the posted speed limits will be maintained to accommodate newbies, avoid speeding tickets or accumulating points on Drivers licenses.
Why: Go on this ride to develop group, night, and general motorcycle skills. Orient yourself to the highways and byways of Las Vegas. Bruce built it; we should ride it. To say you have done it.
There are gas stations on Eastern and Serene, south side of the 215, two blocks south of the Starbucks on Eastern. The café is open 24 hours, is the start/end point. This is a nonstop ride with no breaks for food, gas, or bathrooms. If you have to leave the group for a non-emergency give us the thumbs up, so we know you are alright. Traffic laws, stop signs, and red lights will be obeyed. Traffic rules will be the only reason to stop till we return to the Starbucks. Please look over the map carefully, especially all the turns in the North Las Vegas area.
