Since the beginning of the year, seven bicyclists have lost their lives on Las Vegas valley roadways. None of the bicyclists were wearing helmets.

Among the fatalities were two teen boys. 

The Southern Bicycle Coalition has teamed up with other groups to give free helmets away on Saturday, July 18.

The helmets will be given at two locations:

  • Villa Pizza Durango, 3385 S. Durango Road
  • Academy of Human Development, 235 No. Eastern Avenue

The helmets will be given to anyone needing a helmet for sports protection including those who ride bikes, blades, roller skates or ski.
