Bikes for Kids Brings Happiness to Hundreds

Members of RAMBO continued its annual tradition of joining the team of volunteers to help clean, repair, and prepare lightly used bikes and scooters, so they can be given to area kids and families in need this holiday season. 

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. Their goal is to provide 200-300 quality, gently-used bicycles and tricycles to three charities – North Fulton Community Charities, The Drake House and Home Stretch.

This year's Santa Shop workday on December 6th was another great time for all involved. What better way to spend a (rainy) Saturday, than to give hundreds more kids an opportunity to experience the great times we have on a bike. Special thanks to all the volunteers, bike shops, and sponsors who supported this worthwhile cause.
