Las Vegas (KLAS) – Hundreds of people cycled on Friday night in the famous cycling area of the Southern Nevada Bicycle Union in the Arts District of downtown Las Vegas.
This event celebrated the launch of Coalition’s Let’s go together campaign It provides drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians with motivated and actionable messages.
According to SNVBC, road fatalities in southern Nevada have increased by more than 27% compared to 2020. They add that five cyclists were killed in Clark County this year. Compare with last year’s two.
On Friday night, the community painted a rainbow on a white ghost bike. Every time a driver kills a cyclist in Las Vegas, Ghost Bike Las Vegas sets a white bike. The mission of an organization is that it no longer exists.
Rob Hutchinson, President of SNVBC, said: “Las Vegas is in crisis. Our behavior and thinking on the road must change.”
The Let’s Get Z Together Mural and Community Mural (1208 S. Casino Center Drive) in the historic Corner Building (100 E. California Avenue) were created by Las Vegas artist Shan Michael Evans.
