What is A Can-Am Spyder?
The Can-Am Spyder is a three-wheeled motorcycle manufactured by Bombardier Recreational Products.
The Spyder has a single rear drive wheel and two wheels in front for steering, similar in layout to a
modern snowmobile. The Can-Am Spyder offers advanced safety features including traction control, stability control and antilock brakes.
Advanced Safety & Stability Systems
Our Can-Am Spyders come equipped with the a host of advanced safety and stability features, including traction control,
ABS anti-lock brakes, stability and anti-skid control. These electronic aids help keep the Spyder safely on the road and even novice riders
in comfortable control.
Who Can Ride A Can-Am Spyder?
While virtually anyone can ride the Can-Am Spyder and will be ready for city roads after a simple 15 minute orientation,
the Hoover Dam & Lake Mead Tour requires travelling at freeway speeds of at least 60 mph to reach Hoover Dam.
This requires experience and familiarity with travelling at high speeds surrounded by freeway traffic on a Spyder or motorcycle.
No motorcycle license is required to operate a Can-Am Spyder though guests must possess a regular drivers license.
For your comfort & safety, a helmet
and eye protection are provided.
Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Nevada and Arizona.
It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Originally known as Boulder Dam from 1933, it was officially renamed Hoover Dam by a joint resolution of Congress in 1947. Its construction was
the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives. The dam was named after President Herbert Hoover.
Since about 1900, the Black Canyon and nearby Boulder Canyon had been investigated for their potential to support a dam that would control floods,
provide irrigation water and produce hydroelectric power. In 1928, Congress authorized the project. The winning bid to build the dam was submitted
by a consortium called Six Companies, Inc., which began construction on the dam in early 1931. Such a large concrete structure had never been built
before, and some of the techniques were unproven. The torrid summer weather and lack of facilities near the site also presented difficulties.
Nevertheless, Six Companies turned over the dam to the federal government on March 1, 1936, more than two years ahead of schedule.
Hoover Dam impounds Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States by volume (when it is full). The dam is located near Boulder City,
Nevada, a municipality originally constructed for workers on the construction project, about 30 mi (48 km) southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada.
The dam's generators provide power for public and private utilities in Nevada, Arizona, and California. Hoover Dam is a major tourist attraction;
nearly a million people tour the dam each year. The heavily traveled U.S. Route 93 (US 93) ran along the dam's crest until October 2010, when the Hoover Dam Bypass opened.
Lake Mead National Recreation Area
Lake Mead is a lake on the Colorado River, about 24 mi (39 km) from the Las Vegas Strip, southeast of the city of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the
states of Nevada and Arizona. It is the largest reservoir in the United States in terms of water capacity. Formed by the Hoover Dam, the reservoir
serves water to the states of Arizona, California, and Nevada, providing sustenance to nearly 20 million people and large areas of farmland.
Boat, hike, cycle, camp and fish at America’s most diverse national recreation area. With striking landscapes and brilliant blue waters,
this year-round playground spreads across 1.5 million acres of mountains, canyons, valleys and two vast lakes. See the Hoover Dam from the waters
of Lake Mead or Lake Mohave, or find solitude in one of the park's nine wilderness areas.
At maximum capacity, Lake Mead is 112 miles (180 km) long, 532 feet (162 m) at its greatest depth, has a surface elevation of 1,221.4 feet
(372.3 m) above sea level and 247 square miles (640 km2) of surface area, and contains 26.12 million acre feet (32.22 km3) of water.
"Awesome experience, never miss when you are in Vegas. We will do this again when we are in town! You guys are awesome!!"
"We have done quads and dune buggies in Hawaiian mountains, this far exceeds in beauty and fun.
Have never ridden a motorcycle, and never felt unsafe! A must do in Vegas."
"I've always wanted to ride a Spyder motorcycle, and jumped at the opportunity to ride on what turned out
to be a great tour. We were picked up at our resort early due to the Las Vegas heat in July, practiced riding around in a parking
lot until we all felt comfortable and we were off to Red Rock Canyon in style!"
"It's was completely amazing! I highly recommend this to anyone !
I appreciated how the tour guy considered the heat so the tour was early in the morning. Both of the tour guys were very attentive and caring.
They had water, fruits and protein bars for everyone. The view during the ride was amazing! Whenever I come back to Vegas I will be doing this again!"
"BY FAR the best thing we did in Vegas!! Instead of handing over money to the casinos,
invest it in this tour because you get a whole lot back! From start to finish this tour had beautiful scenery, fun riding, and a knowledgeable guide.
Robert made this trip so easy and having never rode a motorcycle of any sort I picked it up quick. Safety always came
first but lots of fun was had! Great time!!!"
