Bicycles “Fur” Kids

Placitas Animal Rescue has teamed up with Frank Hawks to create “Bicycles Fur Kids”—an effort to provide bicycles to kids who need them. Hawks, who has been fixing up old bikes for years by reconditioning or mixing and matching parts, has reclaimed over one hundred bikes and given them to the Town of Bernalillo for distribution. Gary Miles of Placitas Animal Rescue told the Signpost that he is happy to pick up bicycles, bike parts, and helmets for the program. For more information, call Gary at 867-0004 or Frank at 771-4931.
