Introduction This is my Vegas 200K with the least amount of climbing and minimal navigation issues (i.e. little city travel). It is called Area 51 because the route turns around at the south end of the infamous Area 51 military installation. This route does have one 40-mile section with no services so “buyer beware!”

Start and Ending Point Any service near the junction of Alta Drive and Decatur Blvd in the northwest part of Las Vegas. There is parking at the SW corner near the Texaco at 500 S Decatur Blvd. in Las Vegas. There is also more parking at the NE corner near the Walgreens, Taco Bell and McDonald’s.

Road Conditions Report (mile 16.8 & 109.1, Feb 2018)
Just dropping you a note to let you know I completed the ride today.  There is a detour in place at Kyle Canon Road as they have completely removed it and are building an overpass there.  They have created a temporary entrance to 95 about half a mile further North on the frontage road.
