Can’d Aid, REEB and the Trail Boss, Jeff Lenosky Build 68 New Bikes for Youth
It was a site to behold and every child’s soon-to-be dream. Trail Boss Jeff Lenosky, the REEB crew and local volunteers built 68 new bicycles that will be donated to children at the local Rocky Mountain Elementary School in Longmont, CO. On Monday night, the rag tag crew of wanna be elves, fueled by Oskar Blues beer and Cyclhops Bike CANtina tacos made quick work of building the mini rippers. It was amazing to see so many people getting behind Can’d Aid in their goal to get kids on bikes.
This isn’t new for Can’d Aid, their goal is and has always been to get kids outside, on bikes and away from screens. Leveraging their Treads + Trails Campaign, they have built and donated more that 6700 bikes and skateboards for youth.
