The Community Cycling Center held their 16th annual Holiday Bike Drive yesterday. The event connected over 400 kids from low-income families with a newly refurbished bike, a helmet, basic safety education and most importantly, the freedom and sheer joy that comes with having your own two wheels.
We weren't at the event this year, but the CCC shared a few photos of the happy kids (taken by Britt Appleton):
The impact these bikes are likely to have on these kids — and on our community — is exciting to consider. Thanks to the CCC and all the volunteers and sponsors that make it happen. Learn more about the Holiday Bike Drive on their website.
