Bike Arvin is cleaning up after one of their storefront windows was broken. Natalie Barrett from Bike Bakersfield and Bike Arvin said, a thief broke the window Thursday then stole almost all of Bike Arvin's scooters. 

Barrett said, “We are so busy with bike month that this has hit especially hard and is slowing things down for us."
