ARVIN, Calif. - Bike Bakersfield has expanded to Arvin, allowing more people to buy and repair bicycles.
The new bike kitchen was officially opened Saturday.
Arvin leaders hope increasing bike culture will improve quality of life.
"It's going to be a great amenity for this area for this community," said Jason Carter, executive director. "It's all about healthy living making sure we exercise and we get out there and we do everything we can to have a healthy lifestyle."
Before the bike kitchen, the closest shop was more than 20 miles away. The new shop is at 1241 Bear Mountain Boulevard.
