By MICHELE ONG Their gleaming grins matched their bicycles' shiny wheels as 70 students in the Rodney-Hibiscus Coast area each received new bikes as part of a charity's annual bike tour. The youngsters from the Helensville, Orewa and Wark- worth area are among 450 chil- dren nationwide to receive a new bicycle and helmets as part of the Variety Club annual Bikes for Kids tour. Variety is a non-profit organisation working with disad- vantaged children. Red Beach School twins Clay and Travis Ogg, both aged seven, are among the recipients. Travis says he had a bike a very long time ago'' but the chain fell off. I'm really happy I got to receive this bike in front of the whole school, and I'll ride it around my house, to the beach and around the Orewa skateparks,'' he says. We received heartwarming nominations for children who are seen by their peers as a role model or who have made a difference within their school or community environments,'' Variety Club's chief executive officer Lorraine Taylor says. She says other bicycle recipients have overcome adverse circumstances. This month's Bikes for Kids tour involved Variety volunteers travelling throughout the country presenting bikes to children in Waitakere, North Shore, Helensville, Orewa, Warkworth, Dargaville, Whangarei and Dune- din. Bikes for Kids is in its 11th year and forms a part of the Variety's mobility programme, which provides assistance to children with physical restrictions.
