BeFly Pedals The Red Rock Loop
Bicycling, by its very nature of being an activity in a car-dominated country, tends to attract unique, independent-thinking folks.
Like Beth "The BeFly" Geohagan, who does not own a multi-gear bicycle.
Yet, she insists on biking hilly Red Rock Canyon.
Several weeks ago during a visit, Beth pedaled a tank-like beach cruiser a good 500 feet from a shopping center in Summerlin to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area visitor's center.
But, she also wanted to ride the super-hilly scenic loop, which has severe uphill grades during the first five miles.
So, on Saturday the BeFly used a multi-gear hybrid bike and not only easily biked to the visitors center, she pedaled the entire scenic drive.
She enjoyed the scenery.
