Bikes For Kids Alpharetta

It’s a wrap for 2022, the 16 year for Bikes For Kids! More than 400 bikes/trikes were made ‘Santa Ready’ on our Domestique Day on December 3 for the Holiday Program with North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC). Bike Alpharetta, along with more than 200 volunteers and community partners, collected, repaired and provided hundreds of previously-loved bikes/trikes to NFCC’s Toyland for families in need. The program began in 2007 when the Mullenbach family in Johns Creek collected 65 bicycles in their garage. ALL items cleaned & repaired in ONE DAY.

Since 2007, volunteers with Bikes For Kids have provided 4,713 bicycles, tricycles and scooters, as well as 1,868 new youth helmets, all free of charge to NFCC.

In addition to gently-used, or even new youth bicycles and tricycles, Bike Alpharetta uses monetary donations to purchase new helmets, as it is a Georgia law that children 15 years of age or younger must wear a helmet when operating a bicycle.

Refurbished and new bicycles/tricycles, as well as new helmets and locks, were provided to North Fulton Community Charities and its annual Santa Shop. Bicycles are the No. 1 requested gift item from families!

Bike Alpharetta appreciates all members and friends who collected bikes, contributed funds, and donated talent/time in our previous programs. The word “domestique” is very familiar to cyclists, which calls out the workers in the peloton who serve teammates. Our day to clean and repair 300-plus bicycles/tricycles is indeed a day to serve others!!
