ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The family of a cyclist killed by an accused drunk driver is getting help from the community.

Cyprian Preut, 42, was riding his bike near Central and Broadway last month when officers say 24-year-old Jenna Conlkin crashed into him. Police say she admitted to drinking and taking Vicodin before the crash.

A memorial bike ride was held in Preut’s honor Sunday night. The group ended their ride at Gecko’s Bar and Tapas where a portion of Sunday night’s sales went to Preut’s family.
