Fort Myers, Fla. -- 100 people in Cape Coral and Fort Myers are the proud owners of some gently used bikes.
Billy's Bike Rentals on Sanibel Island donated the wheels to adults and children in need of transportation.
Families were chosen based on their economic needs.
The owner of Billy's Bike Rentals says, he just wanted to pay it forward.
Billy Kirkland said "when I was a kid, someone was giving me a bike, so i'm very fortunate with my business and it allows me to do the same thing, so its sort of gone full circle."
Community Cooperative Ministries Incorporated worked with Billy's Bike Rentals to determine which individuals had the most need.
People who got bikes today, were also fitted with helmets.
