Subject: Joining your state forum soon!

Hey Nevada (specifically LV) folks,

I just found out earlier this week that I'll be moving to Las Vegas in June for work.  I look forward to getting to know you and seeing you around at local races.  Time to start looking for some good training routes as I will be getting heavy and deep into my IMFL2013 training plan when I get there!

Cheers,
Dave

Hey Dave,

Here's an early welcome to the neighborhood !!
You're going to find that we're a pretty active town and regardless of which side of town you live on there are plenty of places to ride.
When you get settled check out the Las Vegas Tri club , good group of folks

If you conquer the hills in Vegas, you'll have NO problems doing well on the Bike for IMFL. LOL! However, do take a lesson from someone who does a lot of hills, but raced on a flattish course - every once in awhile, get yourself out of the saddle and stretch your back, etc. It'll haunt you on the run. Do a lot of long rides where you're pedaling for a long time vs. coasting. :D (Not from me, from another Vegasian).

There's PLENTY of good riding routes around the town. If you're into group rides, there are rides every single day.

And...get used to the dry and HOT weather here. :-(

Thanks for the welcomes folks!  I'm not entirely sure where we'll plop down, but we've got our eyes on some places north and west (just an easier commute to Nellis for me).  We shall see...the housing market is certainly in the buyers favor right now, so we're bound to find something nice!  And it's nice that I've been there quite a few times for work so I'm pretty familiar with the climate...looking forward to hot and dry!

I have a feeling that I'll be pretty good on the hills down there; we're rather hilly here where I currently live.  But I do appreciate the advice about stretching out the back every so often!  Unfortunately I've been on a bit of a training hiatus due to some other training for work which resulted in a severely sprained ankle.  But my doctor cleared me for no/low impact activity yesterday, so it's back to it slow and steady.

I'll definitely look into group rides, the LVTC, and probably try to get involved with and promote the Nevada chapter of Team RWB (who I race for).

Hard to believe I'm about five weeks away!

Looks like you'll be arriving in my favorite time of the year, nice warm summer!!

You'll have to check out the MultiGen pool in Henderson when you have time.

We're looking on the north side of town and out west. Generally as close to Nellis (and friends/coworkers) as possible, but avoiding some parts of the NLV area. We've also seen some houses on the south side but those might be at the bottom of the preference list.
