Vegas has a growing cycling community which by all accounts is one of the most active in the country. Recently the Tour de France, the world’s most prestigious cycling event announced its intention of bringing L’Étape Las Vegas by Tour de France to town for a 2 day “mass participation” experience, giving cyclists the opportunity to see what it’s like for the top cyclists on the world’s biggest stage.
A news release on Monday announced the event, which will include 75-mile, 50-mile and 25-mile route options, along with family and kids rides next year. Scheduled May 13-14, 2023, the event will launch from Las Vegas Ballpark in Summerlin. L’Étape Las Vegas by Tour de France is just the second event in the U.S.
Billed as “the world leader in mass participation cycling events that offers amateur cyclists the ability to race or ride a stage of the Tour de France in their own back yard.” A formal announcement is planned before the Aviators game Thursday night at Las Vegas Ballpark Plaza.
