Since 2007, hundreds of bicycles, tricycles and scooters are donated by friends and neighbors across Alpharetta and surrounding communities to be refurbished for the North Fulton Community Charities’ Santa Shop, providing beneficial holiday gifts for underprivileged families.

Bikes for Kids, founded by the Mullenbach Family in Johns Creek, is now managed by Bike Alpharetta, Inc., a non-profit advocacy organization that promotes safe and fun cycling in north Fulton County. Hundreds of  quality, gently-used bicycles and tricycles are collected, cleaned, repaired for two charities – North Fulton Community Charities and Home Stretch.
