The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has announced that three hotels will be the official hotel partners for the RTC 2012 Viva Bike Vegas Gran Fondo, offering cyclists discounted room rates for the event being held on Saturday, Sept. 22.

Cyclists interested in traveling to Las Vegas for the annual cycling event can enjoy discounted room rates at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, and Staybridge Suites Las Vegas. Cyclists should register today and can book their room online at vivabikevegas.com, saving time and money on their Las Vegas trip.

The RTC 2012 Viva Bike Vegas Gran Fondo will feature three spectacular routes, 118, 72, and 17-mile courses, for cyclists of all skill levels taking riders from the Las Vegas Strip to the vistas of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and the scenic trails near Lake Mead National Park.

All cyclists will again have the opportunity to begin their ride under the bright

lights of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. In addition, century and 72-mile riders will have the unique opportunity to ride over the Hoover Dam.
