Viva Bike Vegas for 2014 is cancelled

The local daily newspaper, the RJ, had a story on the front page of the business section stating that Viva Bike Vegas has been cancelled because last year's ride operated at a loss of $117,000 as a result of fewer entrants and fewer sponsors.

Crap! I was looking forward to riding down the strip. Was planning a whole vacation around riding in that event.

Yes, I am going to miss this event a great deal. Love it last year all but the wind, and I really enjoyed talking to the vendors @ interbike with the half day pass, rider could purchase...

Participated for last 3 years...
