September 28 to October 19 – we invite you to take the Atlanta Bike Challenge! It’s a fun, free competition to encourage your colleagues to experience first hand joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are lots of fantastic prizes.  It’s all about participation – which workplaces can get the most people to ride a bike for just 10 minutes or more?  Atlanta businesses will compete against each other to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike between Sunday September 28 – Sunday October 19.

Allez, Allez. Everyone is invited to celebrate Bike Alpharetta’s third anniversary at our annual Tour de France Viewing Party! We’ve selected one of epic climbing stages (4 KOMs with mountaintop finish on Pla d’Adet) to tempt you to come out and eat/drink/talk to your cycling friends. If you feel the need to wear spandex and a helmet on a Wednesday, then come early for a bike ride on the Big Creek Greenway. We are relocating our Wednesday City Ride, “Harry’s Not In A Hurry”, to the Greenway so you can enjoy the Viewing Party aprés bike ride!

Holiday Bike Drive


Bike Fix Up Clean Up Day 12-7-13The 7th Annual Bike Drive was a huge success!  Bike Alpharetta had 10 individuals and who actively took part with 39 volunteer hours to distribute flyers, pick up bicycles and clean/repair bicycles.  We were part of the 150-plus volunteers who took part in the December 7 Bike Clean Up/ Fix Up Day to repair and restore bicycles, tricycles and scooters for area children.  Because of this hard work, more than 600 bikes and trikes were donated this year to multiple charities in the tri-county area of Forsyth, Fulton and Gwinnett  – North Fulton Community Charities and Rainbow Village.  THANK YOU EVERYONE!!
