Dozens of local children in need are getting a new bike this week. Granite Construction employees assembled 90 bikes Monday.

Some of the bikes will be donated to children of veterans in our area, through the Northern Nevada Veterans Resource Center. "That's a lot of families. It's a bicycle that they wouldn't otherwise have been able to have," Kyle Scott with the Resource Center explains. The remaining bikes will be delivered by the end of the week.

Granite Construction is donating the bikes as part of its 90 year celebration. The company is also hosting a leadership conference for the occasion that brings people to Reno from all over the country.
