Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Traffic came to a standstill in the Las Vegas valley for a good cause.
Roads near the Las Vegas Strip and Tropicana Avenue were blocked off for the Ride For Reading this morning.
More than 100 bicyclists, escorted by a police motorcade, delivered thousands of books to kids at Jack Daily Elementary School.
Ride for Reading is a Tennessee-based nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting literacy and healthy living.
The books were donated by Better World Books.
The event was scheduled during the InterBike International Bicycle Expo, which is taking place this week at Mandalay Bay hotel and casino.
