“Answer Atlanta is excited to announce the selection of Beltline Bike Shop as the 2013 Beneficiary. View full article. The Bike Shop is a unique and truly inspiring organization that aims to teach kids the value of hard work, goal setting and respect by rewarding community service and building positive relationships with adult role models. And it all starts with a bike…”
Because of the great folks at Answer Atlanta we will be able to develop and outfit a mobile bike shop this year. The shop will be built in a 6′x12′ V Nose enclosed trailer and will use professional equipment in an effort to reach out to more neighborhoods by building relationships with friends and families of kids who regularly come to work in our bike shop. We have kids that come from as far as 2 miles away to work on bikes and this limits our ability to reach out to more kids and give them the same opportunities as their older brothers and sisters. The mobile shop will change all that. We will be able to triple our current outreach efforts. This will mean more bikes and other resources so get ready, it’s gonna be a great and impactful year.
At this time we will be pulling the trailer with my Toyota pick up with 190,000 miles on it. The truck will get us by for a while however it isn’t a long term option just an affordable one. We believe that God will provide what we need when we need it and have seen this all along our journey thus far. If you happen to know of anyone that would like to help us out with a better solution we are open to something better and longer lasting to pull the first Beltline Bike mobile shop with.
We want to say how thankful we are to the people at Answer Atlanta and other folks along the way that have partnered and believed in us. It has been amazing to watch the bike shop grow as much as it has in a few short years from a vision in our drive way to an operational bike shop impacting the lives of so many youth.
It’s people like you partnering with us that make it possible.
