BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Bike Arvin has announced that it will not close its doors after receiving a sufficient amount of donations to remain open through 2019.

Bike Arvin also added that throughout September it will open Tuesday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. The business said hours for October will be announced soon along with the new location.
