Yolo Bike DonersCountry Music Singer Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line and his wife Brittney Kelley partnered up with YOLO Co-founder Jeff Archer to donate 15 bicycles to the Walton County Sheriff's office for agency use.  The YOLO Bolt electric bicycles were outfitted for deputies by I will Design for Food, Inc. complete with stickers and branding. The bicycles will be used by the agency’s District 3 and District 4 deputies serving along the 30a corridor. Each deputy will be issued a helmet and safety equipment while they put the bikes to use on the roadway.

The bike provides a pedal-assist for deputies so they can easily travel along the 30a communities while saving some of their energy.“We’re able to get into a lot of the smaller neighborhoods and beat the traffic,” said Lieutenant Dustin Cosson. “And if there’s a breeze, we can also beat the heat.”

Kelley and his wife say they fell in love with the idea of donating bikes to local law enforcement after moving to Panhandle in 2016.

“My wife and I immediately bonded over with the Florida way of life; e-bikes, stand up paddle-boarding and living by the weather,” said Kelley. “That’s when we started dreaming up this idea to donate these bikes to the Sheriff’s Office.”

“We built out the YOLO Bolt with all the max stuff,” said Archer. “It’s got sirens on it, forks, it’s got everything!” “This is just another way for us to provide an increased level of service to those we serve,” said Sheriff Michael Adkinson. “We are appreciative of the donation by the Kelley’s and YOLO.”
