Southern Nevada’s Longest Running Biking Event – Tour de Summerlin

Tour de Summerlin will mark the 20th year of this event making it the longest running bicycle event on Southern Nevada. This event will be held on Saturday April 25 and is made possible through the encouragement and support of the beautiful master-plan of Summerlin and the Howard Hughes Corporation.  When it was created in 2000 the object was – the most ‘rider friendly’ bicycling event in the southwest, and that same idea stuck to this mission year after year after year.

This event shows off the active lifestyle for which this area is known for with scenic backdrops that make it one of the best places to bicycle in the entire Southwest. It is a great way to see a good amount of the villages in Summerlin and if you are looking for a home to purchase in the master-plan you can get a feel of where you might want to live.  After the race contact me and we can discuss what you are looking for in a neighborhood and a home.

One of the most unique aspects of the Tour de Summerlin is the abundant amount of biking lanes that are used throughout the different routes. The #1 commitment has always been rider safety and utilizing miles and miles of biking lanes created for a ‘rider friendly’ experience. It’s also hard to beat the winning combination of Summerlin’s man-made amenities and Mother Nature.

This year’s start and finish line will again be located at beautiful Downtown Summerlin -the ultimate destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in southern Nevada. Invite your family and friends to come out and enjoy a day of shopping and dining before heading over to the finish line to cheer you on! The Tour de Summerlin is sure to create a dynamic and engaging experience for the entire community.  The Registration fee is $80.  More information and registration go to www.tourdesummerlin.com

The Tour de Summerlin will continue to offer three different ride distances: 80, 40 and 20 miles. With it being so early in the biking season (April), the sponsors believe that it’s important to maintain routes that are still challenging enough for the most serious riders, but also attainable for those riders who are looking to push themselves to a higher level or complete a long distance for the first time as the weather begins to warm. The sponsors are constantly striving to enhance and improve the ride experiences. This involves evaluating current and future road construction, possible safety issues and minimizing stoplight and stop sign constrictions.  Stay tuned for any last minute route changes by following Tour de Summerlin on Facebook and Twitter

After the race, join the activities for all the action at Downtown Summerlin’s “Wellness Festival” featuring complimentary fitness classes, entertainment, children’s activities and more!

Start Times for Tour de Summerlin
7 AM – 80 mile ride
8:15 AM – 40 mile ride
9:15 AM – 20 mile ride

One more thing -If you are traveling from out of the area and would like to rent a bicycle for the event, we’ve got you covered. Just contact McGhies Ski, Bike & Board at 702-252-8077 and they will reserve a bike for you and get you properly fitted so you are riding the correctly sized bike. Open 7am – 4pm.

Each year I try to remember my lunar sign and then I look it up and get it wrong.  I always think I’m in the year of the Monkey; however, my birthday is in January and before the lunar New Year that year, so I was actually born in the year of the Goat, which is the eighth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Goat and Deer set off together, but they needed to cross a river. There were no boats available, so they had to swim across. The Deer couldn’t take it and gave up. Goat struggled on by himself and finally made it to the party as eighth place. That sounds like me! I hate to miss a great party!

Want to look up your sign – click here https://chinesenewyear.net/zodiac/

Caution: the Chinese New Year moves between 21 January and 20 February, so if your birthday falls between those dates you may have to look it up to check. Just google “when did lunar new year begin in xxxx”. And if you were born between January 1 & January 20, then your Chinese Zodiac animal will be the one listed for the year before you were born…

Summerlin Turns 30 This Year!

As a resident of Summerlin I cannot express how much my family and I enjoy living in this ever-evolving master-planned community.

Billionaire Howard Hughes purchased the original 25,000-acre mass of land in 1952 on the west side of the Las Vegas Valley that extended into Red Rock Canyon.  The original name was Husite.  When Hughes died in 1976, his heirs were left with the empty land but saw the potential for a master-planned community. The name was then changed from Husite to Summerlin after Hughes’ paternal grandmother, Jean Amelia Summerlin.

The Hughes Corp. felt it would be inappropriate to build within Red Rock Canyon, so the early planners of Summerlin traded the 5,000 acres adjacent to the Canyon for 3,000 acres south, which is now known as Summerlin South.   The first development of Summerlin started in 1990 and the first family moved into a home in 1991.

Since then Summerlin blossomed into what you see today and there is more to come.  Downtown Summerlin is a great success and there will be expansion in that area as this year progresses.  A new village called Redpoint will break ground on the west side of the 215 Beltway and Far Hills Drive. There will be a mix of single-family detached homes, townhomes, condos, and attached duplexes that will be designed to work with it surrounding natural environment – like the other villages of Summerlin.

From the beginning, the master-plan of Summerlin has had strict design guidelines that homebuilder developers have to follow.  I’m sure you have notices lots of open space in Summerlin where there are many parks both large and small with fields and courts for playing sports.  Also, Summerlin has one of the best trail systems in the country (it has even won awards).

Within the next week or so Metro Police will have a substation in Summerlin – the first in the master-plan.  The fire department is building another station starting in 2020.

I could keep going on about all the thought that the Hughes Corp. put into Summerlin that makes it the best master-planned community in Nevada (in 2019 it was the #3 best-selling master-planned community in the nation), but for now, I will “sign off”.

Just in time for the New Year – the Las Vegas Metro Police Substation will be Opening in Summerlin

First, I want to take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.  2020 begins a new decade with continued growth in the city we call home, Las Vegas…

…Construction of the newest Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is now complete and officially opening on January 25.

The substation is located at 11301 Red Point Drive, near Summerlin Parkway and Far Hills Avenue. This 24,000 square foot facility was funded by The Howard Hughes Corporation on donated land by the same corporation and will be deeded to the Metropolitan Police Department upon completion.  This station is expected to have 168 commissioned personnel and 16 civilian staff members.

Captain Sasha Larkin will be heading up the new substation to oversee operations once it opens.  According to Tom Warden, senior vice president of community and government relations for Summerlin this substation has been planned for many years ago as a part of the master-planned community of Summerlin.  Warden commented “Having a substation located within the community that is designated to serve all of Summerlin will go a long way in helping to keep safe and protected as it grows.”

There is an open house scheduled for February 4, with the doors open to the public at 5:45 p.m. Will I see you there?

Deadline Approaching –The Summerlin Annual Toy Drive Needs your Help (sooner than you might think)

 

We all want to put a smile on a kids face especially during the holidays. So now is the time to do just that. The annual Summerlin Toy Drive is back this year – giving toys to underprivileged kids for the holidays and bringing a little joy to everyone. The unwrapped new toys must be dropped off by the end of the day on December 13.

Before you read any further, to ensure that we get the most donations possible, here are 2 ways I will make it even easier for you to help;

  1. If you bought toys at the grocery store or online, and you live in Summerlin, I will pick up the toys from you.
  2. If you want to help financially, and don’t have time to shop, then I will accept donations of money and or gift cards and I will go shopping on December 12th and deliver those as well!

Or… the community will be accepting UNWRAPPED new toys at the following locations:

Downtown Summerlin Concierge – In the breezeway of One Summerlin from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Las Vegas Ballpark: 1650 S. Pavilion Center Drive (main office on Oval Park Drive under the “K” in Ballpark); 702-943-7240; open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

This toy drive is organized by the Howard Hughes Corp. – the developer of the master-planned community of Summerlin. According to Tom Warden, senior vice president of Community and Government Relations for Summerlin stated “Our community’s response to this effort is historically strong and we expect this year to be no different”.  Summerlin’s toy drive is in conjunction with Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly’s initiative to ensure every child living in Southern Nevada has a gift for the holidays.

So don’t be a Grinch and if you can only afford ONE toy just think of the smile you will be bringing to one kids face.  I love supporting the Summerlin community and especially organizations that help kids, and I hope you’ll join me this year.

“Go to the public library… from your computer or mobile device?”

I love the library – so many books and videos to find and you can take so much home with your trusty library card.  Oh wait, that was years ago.  Boys and Girls the library is fully in the 21st century.

I just discovered how much you can get from the public library without going to the library… including free music, movies, audiobooks, emagazines, ebooks and more. Plus you can get streaming from the library app called Libby and I recommend you also add the Hoopla app.

A good place to start is https://lvccld.org/online-resources/.  I googled this and then decided to actually go to the library when I found out my library card wasn’t the updated version they have been offering for the last 2-3 years.  It’s special alright – the card has the Vegas Golden Knights logo on the front of the card.  While at the library I spoke to a computer specialist to find out how I can stream movies and TV shows – very helpful.

I don’t know if you have been to the Summerlin Library – did you know it is part of the Clark County –Las Vegas library system?  I found out just recently it was.  The Summerlin Library is fantastic – there are so many events there all year round.

Plus they have several musicals and plays that are open to the public for a very small fee in their wonderful theatre and the casts are fantastic.  Click here for more information on the Summerlin Library https://lvccld.org/locations/SM/
