The BeltLine Bike Shop takes in donated bicycles and invites inner city kids to earn a bike of their own by picking up garbage from their trash-ridden streets. The Earn-A-Bike program is relationship-driven and based on the value of an exchange between giver and receiver. Kids pick up five bags trash, debris or participate in a community work project and earn a bike of their own. Relationships are then maintained through interactions throughout the neighborhood as well as by teaching kids how to repair their bikes and providing opportunities for them to earn tubes, tires, and parts when needed. More than just an opportunity for a child to receive a bicycle, the BeltLine Bike Shop helps economically and culturally diverse neighborhoods in Atlanta build community with at-risk youth.
Communicycle is a non-profit bicycle co-op located in Chamblee, GA in northeast metro Atlanta. Our shop is open to anyone, but we are specifically focused on serving the communities of Chamblee and Doraville through bicycle repair and redistribution. We serve people by providing free bicycle maintenance services and education during open shop hours, on-site shop clinics hosted by local apartment communities, and through partnerships with area non-profits.
During Open Shop Hours, people come to...
• Fix their own bicycles
• Build bicycles from donated parts
• Help others
• Donate materials
• Build friendships
No experience? No problem! Our volunteers are here to help you.

The South Atlanta Bike Shop is a youth development program of CED (Community Economic Development) which is a 501c(3) non-profit organization equipping individuals and families from the Historic South Atlanta community to strengthen themselves economically. Youth from our community, ages 11-18, can earn “shop bucks” by working in the bike shop and spend these to purchase bicycles, bicycle accessories, replacement parts and pay for bike trip registration fees. The bike shop repairs donated bicycles and places them for sale at affordable prices in the South Atlanta Marketplace.
SORBA Trips for Kids provides mountain bike outings and environmental education for kids across the country who would not otherwise have these opportunities. Our goal is to combine lessons in personal responsibility, achievement and environmental awareness through development of practical skills and the simple act of having fun.
