Great destination ride to Boulder City Starbucks. Most all of the effort in this ride is on the way there. Turning around to complete the round trip is considered "all downhill". Mostly true with a few exceptions. Approaching Railroad Pass from Boulder City you will encounter a slight grade that justifies a gear change or two. Immediately, crossing the railroad tracks is a short but steep hill where some cyclists get blindsided and have to walk the bike uphill. Be prepared for this hill climb and the rest of the return trip is a breeze. The exception will be the "Solar Panel Grind" which is about a 3/4 mile ascent before you sail downhill. You can opt out of the Three Sisters and return to Lake Mead Parkway by way of Ithaca to Racetrack. See your map.
