Thrive Hood River held its third annual Kids Bike Giveaway throughout June and July. Along with community partners evo and Mt. View Cycles, the group delivered 11 bikes to local kids in Hood River County.

“In line with their work advocating for safe, people-centered streets and alternative transportation, Thrive began hosting the giveaway at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to give back to their community, and help get kids on bikes,” said Jackie Kramer, Thrive director of operations and outreach.
