Christmas Community Bike Build

The Ride for Bikes organization is expanding this year’s Christmas Community Bike Build. The bikes will be assembled by volunteers at two different locations starting at 8 a.m. In Artesia the bikes will be assembled at the Artesia Center, 612 N. Eighth St. In Lovington bikes will be built at the Llano Elementary School, 1000 S First St. Volunteers will be needed to help assemble bikes, air up tires and tag them with the child’s name. Volunteers assembling bikes will need to bring their own tools; 10 to 15 mm open and box end metric wrenches and Phillips screwdrivers. If you have not assembled a bike do not worry as there are plenty of jobs that don’t require any tools or mechanical skills. The bike build is a time for families and groups to work together to do something for others. Children will be assigned as bike wranglers, responsible for keeping the bikes moving through the assembly process and keeping the area clean. It is a fun time for all.
