As a thank you to our devoted bike share members, the RTC is launching a free loyalty program for our Explorer and Downtowner pass holders. Bikecentives awards limited edition swag to our most valuable pedalers through a three-tier structure:

Tier 1 = 50 rides
Tier 2 = 150 rides 
Tier 3 = 300 rides

Every time a member reaches a milestone in a calendar year, they’ll receive one of three bike-friendly accessories. This year’s prizes include a backpack, collapsible water bottle, and a portable speaker. Prizes will change annually. 

Bike Share milestones

Pass holders who have taken rides between January 2021 and April 2021 will have their rides counted for this year. Keep those wheels spinning and check out our station map to plan your next ride!

Ride Safe Campaign

The RTC joins the efforts of the Southern Nevada Bicycle Coalition (SNVBC) to keep cyclists safe. The Ride Safe campaign identifies five critical points of gear and behavior for cyclists to keep top-of-mind:

Ride Safe includes a targeted social media campaign with videos featuring cycling influencers. Information will also be disseminated by SNVBC members partners, including the RTC. 

RideSafe LogoDuring May, the Ride Safe campaign will have components for Bike to School and Bike to Work Days. Bike to School Day, May 5, is a national initiative that focuses on students’ healthy lifestyles, safety, and fostering community participation in raising awareness of traffic rules and sharing the road with cyclists. On Bike to Work Day, May 21, Ride Safe will have a special focus on Clark County’s growing bicycle commuter population.

Earlier this year, SNVBC introduced Change Lanes for Bikes! It’s the Law, a public awareness campaign aimed to educate motorists and cyclists about Nevada’s 3-Feet/Move Over passing Law. Nevada is one of 33 states to enforce a 3-Feet law and is one of five states to specify that motorists should move into an adjacent lane to the left if the lane is available when passing a cyclist.
