On Nov. 13 at 7 p.m., "Free Bikes 4 Kidz" (FB4K) will host its second-annual Wrench Slinger Shootout where teams of local bike shops and mechanics will assemble 240 brand-new bikes for children in Maple Grove.

The bikes assembled at the FB4K event at The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes, located at I-94 and Hemlock Lane, will be given to churches, schools and homeless shelters at events taking place on Dec. 7 and Dec. 8.

The company gave away 250 bikes during its first year in 2008 and is set to donate 5000 to 6000 bikes this December.
