This is the 10th year that Reynolds has purchased, assembled and donated the bikes, the company said. Bikes ranging from tricycles to 29-inch multi-speed models will be assembled, according to Reynolds.

Airmen from the base will pick up the bicycles at the Reynolds campus off County Line Road in Kettering, the company said.

Each bike will include a new bike helmet donated by the city of Kettering. This is the seventh year the city has donated helmets.

The 9 to 11 a.m. event is for Reynolds families and invited guests. It is not open to the public.

The company also hosts similar events at its locations in Houston and College Station, Texas.

“Since launching the Reynolds bike build in 2007, Reynolds families have assembled more than 1,400 bicycles during the Christmas holidays for children of military families,” Reynolds said in a release.
