Nearly every cyclist who pedals from Summerlin to the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area loop entrance is a roadie.
But not Beth Geohagan, owner of BeFly Bike Tours in Lakeland, Fla.
She pedaled a fat-tire cruiser bicycle along the Nevada State Road 159 shoulder and steadily pedaled her way to the Red Rock entrance, then up the hill to the visitors center. It was no trivial matter to climb from 3.250 feet to about 3,700 feet to the visitors center on a cruiser bike. It's a sloping uphill the whole way, but Beth pedaled in true BeFly style.
On the way home, we checked out the new extended Western Beltway Trail along the 215 and reached the bridge at Far Hills Avenue.
