"Ride the Future Tour" rolls through Las Vegas this weekend

CREATED Aug. 5, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Environmentalists trying to make a difference, took their cause on the road.

Riding the most advanced electric bike in the world, they're going from South Carolina to the Google headquarters in San Francisco.

The "Ride the Future Tour" is an electric vehicle cross-country tour that's raising awareness about issues of gas emission.

The tour rolled through Las Vegas on Sunday.

"We'd like to see more vehicles that use fewer fossil fuels on the roads to protect the environment," said Ben Rich.

The electric vehicle parade also includes an electric car and motorcycle.

Getting the word out about the cause is the main goal for the trip.

They're also trying to break the Guinness Book of World Records title for the longest continuous journey by an electric bike.
