The Boys & Girls Club Silicon Valley has turned into a bike shop Tuesday morning, with more than 150 Lowe's Improvement employees from 15 South Bay stores taking care of the hard part - constructing 150 bicycles for neighborhood kids.

"What we're really excited about is we're going to be taking these bicycles, the helmets, the chains, the locks -- we're going to be then giving them back to the boys and girls club in our entire market," said Lowe's employee Amy Hernandez.
Bicycles will go to kids at nearly a dozen Boys & Girls clubs across the South Bay, from little tikes to teens.
Crews assembled more than $30,000 worth of merchandise. Lowe's Heroes hope their efforts lead to priceless memories. "You're always going to remember the first time you learned to ride a bike. I think that giving them these bikes and giving them the ability to learn how to ride a bike is going to be something they're going to remember forever," said Lowe's employee Jeffrey Reynolds.
