Following the memorial, organizers encouraged community members to ride in small groups, or individually, in honor of the LV5.

“On Saturday, our goal is to show support for the families who lost loved ones and to be there for one another,” says Pat Treichel, founder of Ghost Bikes Las Vegas. “We also want to continue the conversation on cyclist safety by educating new cyclists about safety while reminding motorists of Nevada’s 3-Feet/Move Over law.”
