Who or what are the Three Sisters? They are three mountain ridges all in a row at the north end of the loop between mile marker #6.5 and #8. These three were given their names by bike riders in the Annual Silverman Triathlon. There average grade is around 15% up & down. For the causal rider they offer good views of east Henderson and the Las Vegas valley. We have looked at moving this segment into longer switch backs to reduce the grade, but the riders see it as a real challenge and goal to be able to make it over the top with out stopping. This last year we had several riders come in to Aid Station #10 boasting that they had made the “Three Sisters.” Some of the local riders also refer to them as the “Three Bitches”, but we prefer sisters.
