80 kids get new bikes, helmets

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) - Some local children got an early Christmas Gift Friday - a new bike.

Chula Vista BMX teamed up with the YMCA to give 80 bikes to 80 kids at the US Olympic Training Center.

The kids also received bike helmets and Chula Vista firefighters were on hand to make sure each child's helmet fit properly.

After they received their bikes, the kids attended a bike safety training session and were able to try out their new wheels.

Organizers say they hope the bikes will help the kids stay active and healthy.
