Mesquite Madness Cycling Event
It’s cold outside. It’s crazy how much you miss the exhilaration and freedom of riding! The simple truth is, You want to ride your bike. But ice and snow make it nearly impossible to get a good ride in. Heck, maybe you live somewhere where it doesn’t snow much, but it’s still cold and worse, windy and rainy… Yuck!
The question is, “What are you going to do about it?”
We’ve got the solution to your winter riding blues. Get your bike ready, bring the family for a sunny weekend vacation, and ride in Mesquite Madness (presented by SpinGeeks and Virgin River Casino) in Mesquite, Nevada on Saturday March 16, 2013!
Two event courses mean there’s something for every riding level. You’ll enjoy sunshine and scenery on both the Citizen’s Class (38 mile) and the Metric Century (80 mile) as they loop through Mesquite, travel Riverside Rd, and even a bit of Arizona. The Metric Century also allows you to experience nature’s full splendor as it flows along Highway 91 through nearly untouched parts of Arizona and Utah!
Both event rides include rest stops, an event visor, are supported by SAG vehicles, and have lunch provided at the finish line. We’re even providing a professional photographer to capture memories during the event.
One of the best parts of Mesquite Madness is you’ll want to bring your family or friends for weekend of fun and entertainment.
