What is the Great Dam Ride?

The Great Dam Ride is the signature Cycle For Air event in Nevada! Three different routes and a Cycle Your Way option ensure that this bike ride has something for everyone - from experienced cyclists to those new to riding, including younger, novice cyclists.

Experience a ride through the beautiful scenery of Henderson and Boulder City, offering stunning views of the surrounding mountains and the sparkling waters of Lake Mead.

You can attempt the 70 Mile loop, the 35-mile loop, and a family ride up to 12 miles. All routes start and finish at the stunning Hemenway Park in Boulder City. So you and your friends, family, or team members can celebrate completion together. Kids are welcome to participate in the Family Ride along with their parents.

This 12-mile does have some rolling hills, but it is perfect for families and cyclists of all levels.
