Tour de Vegas

This Memorial Day weekend, I decided to drive to Vegas and go for a ride along the Strip. In my lifetime, I doubt that Vegas will be shut down again like it is right now, so I wanted to take the opportunity to go down there and document my ride.

There were very few people on the strip, but as you know, it is usually packed with tourists walking around etc…

At the end of my ride, I needed to eat and I found an establishment that was OPEN!

Even Fremont Street was dead.

No one around and the entrance has been closed off.

As a bonus, I visited Alegiant Stadium, the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders.

I am so happy I was able to make this happen. The drive from our house took just under 3 hours! That is unheard of. Overall I loved the whole experience. It did get a bit too hot to ride toward the end of my ride, the temperature reached 93 degrees. I hope we do not have another pandemic in my lifetime but I am glad I was able to visit Las Vegas for this experience. It was well worth the trip.
