    I almost moved there a couple months ago and was scouting it out. Vegas is NOT a cycling town,
    though the locals are outdoorsy to an extent. Serious racers are few, but serious. There are two
    high-end shops that I could find. Only one of them had a club/team. I can't remember but something
    in my head says one is call Peloton Sports or similar, and the other is Professional something. I
    just popped into an old Schwinn shop, noted the tricycles, and asked the proprietor where the
    serious shops were. Both were in the Summerlin area.

    Sounds like a business opportunity for a savvy bike business geek. Two million people, two high-end
    shops. Here in the Wasatch we've got like, twenty. Nevada is starting to emphasize outdoor
    recreation in their advertising.

    I've taken 2 multi-day trips to Vegas, and both time I've taken my bike. There's a cool 50 mile
    loop that you can do west of the city of the south end of town, past red rock canyon, and back into
    the north end of the strip. If you add the tour of the canyon, you'll add some climbs and about 15
    miles to the total trip. I'm also sure that there's cool riding to be had east of the city, over
    near lake Meade.

    Regarding Vegas not being a cycling town: every time I was out riding in the desert I passed
    numerous other cyclists (not to mention wild burroughs). I'm not sure what the racing scene is like,
    but there's certainly opportunities for riding, if you're interested in pursuing them.

    Check with the Las Vegas Bike Club - http://www.vegasbikeclib.org/. My wife went to a conference
    there, so I went with her and brought my bike. The bike club had a Thursday morning ride that was
    pretty nice, and we got back before it got too hot (this was in June).
