LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A bike give away has been canceled after the bikes were given away by mistake to a different school.

CBS 19 has learned an assembly organized by Academy Sports was supposed to give 30 bikes away to 30 students of South Ward Elementary, according to emails.

The school's counselor says the bikes never came.

Turns out the bikes were sent to school a few blocks away, Bramlette Elementary . A miscommunication between the Home Office and the local store caused the headaches Thursday.
