How does it work?

  • Teams of 3-4 people will work to assemble a brand new 20” Huffy bicycle.
  • Once a bicycle is assembled, it will be brought to the inspection tent where it will be fully inspected by qualified bike technicians.
  • After inspection, the bike will be delivered to a partner tent.
  • Once the partner has received a bike, they will allocate that bike and a lock to a child in their group.
  • The child will walk his/her new bike over to the Sheriff’s Office tent, where they will be fitted with a new helmet.
  • After receiving their helmet, the child will be guided through a bicycle safety course.

There will be a race by Naples BMX, and face-painting for the kids. Food & beverages will be provided for all volunteers and attendees.
