Hundreds of local kids will be riding around in style this Christmas, thanks to a special bike giveaway.

"They contacted the radio station and we had a contest where people would write in and nominate a child," said Gil Oteen, a radio personality at 92-7 K-Bay. "And once their name was selected, they would be given a bike."

Malkan Broadcasting and Bay Area Bicycles held the bike giveaway Thursday at the Gulf Coast Shopping Center. Over 200 bikes and helmets were given away during the Bikes for Kids campaign.
