April 8 Henderson, Nevada hosts Crazy Spokes (Rayos Locos), which features a 15-mile bike ride and 5.5-mile family fun ride, is scheduled from 9am-1pm on April 8. Both rides will start and finish at the Henderson Events Plaza. Early registration is $15 per adult and $10 per child (ages 5 to 17) per ride prior to April 5. Register at any recreation center or online.
The event is part of a continuing celebration of Henderson as a Bicycle Friendly Community with a fun bicycling event for all cycling abilities. Inclusive and immersive, it’s a local travel event we fully support.
Starting at 10am the 15-mile bike ride will be guided by dedicated REI staff. It is an educational tour that teaches people new to the sport of cycling the fundamentals of distance riding. The group ride also gives participants the opportunity to experience some of the city’s bicycle-friendly roads and trails, including the popular and newly-named Harry Reid Union Pacific Railroad Trail.
The one-day bicycling event also features an organized bike ride for families, which begins at 10:30am. The course is about 5.5 miles and designed with beginners in mind. Participants, who are encouraged to dress up in wacky outfits and decorate their bikes, will enjoy the fun and casual ride to Acacia Park and back to the Henderson Events Plaza.
All riders will receive lunch at the end of the ride, along with a Crazy Spokes commemorative T-shirt, while supplies last.
