Arts Arts&Entertainment MOVIES + MUSIC + ART + FOOD THREE THINGS ON TWO WHEELS Bicycle events are amassing this fall Interbike International Bicycle Exposition (September 18-20) is the largest annual gathering of cycling industry gurus ever, and it happens right here. But you don't have to be a rich pedal-head to partake. This year's Interbike is set to happen at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, which means the free Mobile Social (September 19, 6:30 p.m.)—featuring tricked-out bikes taking over the Strip and a free early-bird afterparty—should be a long and amazing one. Watch out, cabbies. > MONEY TALKS Will Mayweather still be unbeaten after Saturday night? TRUST US Stuff you'll want to know about with a concert featuring the UNLV Alumni Jazz Band and tenor saxophonist Don Menza. September 17, 7:30 p.m., $10-$12, Artemus Ham Hall.

September 13, 7 p.m., P3Studio. The sixth of its kind, this year's RTC Viva Bike Vegas (September 21) promises to be bigger than ever. With three routes—the Zeus 104mile, demigod 61-mile and 17-mile for the rest of us—Viva travels the Strip, Red Rock Canyon and Lake Mead. At $125 per rider, Viva isn't a steal, but the fee includes lunch, a lot of great swag, a beer garden afterparty and, most importantly, big donations to a few great area causes like the After-School AllStars. Miss raves but not the blue Mondays? Blinking Man (October 19) has the solution. Beginning at 7 p.m. from the Huntridge Tavern, this themed night ride follows a Downtown route and hits up unfrequented places like the 5th Avenue Pub, along with the usual suspects. A free gathering that has more to do with meeting people than working up a sweat, Blinking Man still offers better odds of being hangover-free than most crawls. –Molly O'Donnell EAT SAN GENNARO FEAST The amuse- FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR.
