SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Inmates at a New Mexico state prison in Las Cruces are helping restore bicycles for low-income residents.

Department of Corrections officials say the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility’s Bicycle Restoration Program is being used to teach inmates needed skills and to help residents who need bikes.

So far, officials say 40 bikes have been restored and 20 have been given to low-income families.

The program is one of many new efforts aimed at teaching inmates new skills while serving time in New Mexico prisons.
