Planning continues year round at Bike Alpharetta to encourage more people to enjoy bicycles – for errands, for fitness, for transportation and for fun. We also continue to advocate for improved bicycle facilities – in parks, on roads, and with businesses. Join us for a monthly meeting (3rd Thursday each month at City Hall, 6 p.m.), join us as a volunteer for Bikes For Kids (Oct-Dec special project), or join us for a beginner bike ride (Out & About page).

Congratulations to American Honda Motor Co., Inc. – Honda Power Equipment Div. for being recognized with a Bronze designation as a Bicycle Friendly Business in the U.S.! This is the only business in Alpharetta (and north Fulton County) with BFB recognition from the League of American Bicyclists.

Applicants to the competitive BFB program are evaluated based on nearly 100 data points related to bicycle-friendly facilities and accessibility, culture-building events, safety education programming and other practices, policies, and incentives that encourage bicycling. There are 11 BFB’s in Georgia. All 1,250 current BFBs are easily found via the League’s interactive awards map.

iCan Bike

Our Community made a Difference 

iCan Shine is a national charitable nonprofit organization which conducts over 100, five-day iCan Bike programs in the U.S. iCan Bike teaches approximately 3,000 people with disabilities how to ride a two-wheeled bicycle each year. Since its inception in 2007, approximately 20,000 people with disabilities have learned to ride a bicycle through this wonderful program. Research shows that over 80% of people with Autism and 90% of people with Down syndrome never experience this thrill. Defying these odds is why we exist!

We are very lucky to have the opportunity to host the iCan Bike program in Alpharetta, Ga., hosted by The Alpharetta Department of Public Safety and The Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation.  The iCan Bike program was held at The Cooler Family Skate Center. THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
