Martin Johnson, right, mechanic with Phat Tire, checks the brakes and gear alignment of a bicycle Wednesday at AMP Sign and Banner in Bentonville as volunteers assemble new bikes purchased for the Bentonville School District. The district received grants from the Walton Family Foundation, Coca-Cola, Bentonville Public Schools Foundation and the Walmart Visitors Center to purchase 540 bicycles and Bell donated 540 helmets to accompany the bikes. Each school will have 30 bicycles to use with their physical education classes.
