‘50 bikes’ event set in North Natomas
Community volunteers will join forces to help kids transform bike parts into ready-to-ride bicycles. The event matches 50 well-deserving youth with teams of volunteers to assemble a bike for each child on the team. These “volunteer engineers” hail from local community organizations and businesses, and range from bike enthusiasts to mechanical novices. The event runs from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Natomas Middle School, 3200 North Park Drive.
