April 26th, 2019 – Anaheim, CA – During Jeff Lenosky’s month long Sea Otter Classic west coast tour, rooted in the non-profit Can’d Aid’s children’s bike donations, the REEB Cycles team rider’s van was broken into outside of his hotel in Anaheim, CA the night of April 24th. Everything the 20 year professional and Youtube sensation uses to make a living including his two REEB Cycles bikes, computers, cameras and hard drives with all of his personal and professional data were stolen. REEB Cycles is offering a FREE steel REEB frame for anyone who can help return any of Jeff’s equipment.
Jeff’s West Coast trip an assembly program where he encouraged over 6,000 kids to get excited about cycling, leading #TrailBoss group rides with locals, hosting a Can’d Aid bike build with Work Horse Bicycles and donating 60 new bikes to an entire class of deserving Title One first graders at Highland Elementary while wowing them with his trials skills

After the long flight home, Jeff stated “It’s completely demoralizing to spend a month on the road, away from my family, spreading good vibes and getting underprivileged kids on bikes to have the trip end this way. Everything I have compiled, personally and professionally, over many years of effort are housed on that equipment.”
The season started with the Sedona Mtb Festival where Jeff & REEB teamed up for another round of demo rides, group rides, bike builds and bike donations via the non-profit Can’d Aid’s “Treads + Trails” program.

Earlier this year, Jeff’s unprecedented move after 17 years with Giant Bicycles to the small counter-culture REEB Cycles was partially inspired by the opportunity to align efforts with REEB’s non-profit partner the Can’d Aid. In addition to his hands-on impact at REEB, growing the company with product development, marketing and leveraging his Trail Boss group rides, Jeff serves as a “Treads and Trails” ambassador for Can’d Aid, hosting bike builds and bike donations behalf across the country. Can’d Aid has donated over 2,700 bikes to low income children in the past 5 years.

The opportunity to dig-in & work closely with a grass roots mountain bike company, making handmade bikes, like REEB is super motivating. The past few years I’ve been working as an ambassador with the Can’d Aid Foundation for their Treads and Trails Program, which has a big focus on getting low income kids on bikes and outside. REEB has always been about getting people stoked on bikes and their commitment to supporting Can’d Aid Foundation’s mission created a big picture opportunity to work with a core bike company and support a larger goal that is important to me and my career. – Jeff Lenosky.
For every frame sold in 2019 REEB Cycles will donate a Can’d Aid Treads + Trails bike to an underprivileged child. The partnership will allow Can’d Aid to get even more kids outside, enjoying healthy, active lifestyles.
