Holiday Cheer on Two Wheels

The 2nd annual Bikes for Kids holiday excursion welcomed 25 children and their parents and guardians to a special party at their Wheelhouse in Essex. Bikes for Kids partners with Essex Steam Train & Railroad to share an evening on the North Pole Express with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Bikes for Kids board members, volunteers, and members of the community come together to set up the Wheelhouse with a festive tree, a table full of helmets, tasty treats, and a line of brand new bikes specially chosen for the children. We would like to offer a special “Round of Applause” to the Killingworth Lions Club for assembling the bikes and having them ready to “ride off into the night” (though everyone stayed well within the lighted parking lot!).

There were grins, shouts of joy, giggles, jumping … and cries of “can I ride the bike NOW?” echoing through the wheelhouse. Take a look at some of the smiles we saw that night:
