Hobbs, New Mexico | Bike Drive
Christmas of 2020 marked the 20th anniversary of the R360 Environmental Solutions & Waste Connections bike building contribution event for the southeast New Mexico area. What began as a fun little project for a few kids in the area, has turned into an entire community Christmas event. From raising money and building bikes for just 16 kids in 2001, in 2019 they hand-delivered 407 bicycles and helmets to children around Hobbs, Carlsbad, Eunice, and Loving, New Mexico.
4Rivers has donated for years now and we didn’t stop just because of 2020. We were there to donate some bikes ourselves.
