Two out of three bikes stolen from a Redding bike shop intended for victims of the Carr Fire have been recovered.

The bikes were stolen from the Chain Gang bike shop late Tuesday, early Wednesday morning.

With the help of the CHP and Redding police, two of the bikes were recovered.

And one of those bikes now has a happy new home.

“First thing this morning, I got a call,” said Laura Sanford whose grandkids lost their bikes in the Carr Fire.” It was just amazing. And as you can see, my grandkids, all four of them have bikes including they had had one for my daughter. And it's just a wonderful feeling. There's nothing like a bike for a kid especially at Christmas.”

Sanford said her family has always been a mountain biking family, so these gifts will help bring some normalcy after the fire.

"We used to do single track when the kids were tinier, even my kids that are adults now," she said. "We did it when they were children out in the Whiskeytown area and French Gulch area. So to have it back, and have the kids ride all over the place - I don't want them on video games all day. And having a bike is what they needed."

CHP found one of the bikes in the trunk of a stolen car during a traffic stop.

They recognized it and called the Chain Gang owners who picked it up Friday morning, fixed it up, and gifted it to one lucky child along with three other bikes they already had in-store.

Someone spotted the second bike and called police who then recovered it.

One bike is still missing.
