SoPo’s Annual Fundraising Campaign

2014 is rolling on and SoPo needs your help!

Over the past year, nearly 130 dedicated volunteers have helped over 6,500 shop visitors learn to maintain their bicycles. We collaborated with community partners such as the International Refugee Council, Habitat for Humanity, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, and Catholic Charities, and given away over 150 bicycles.

Our plans for 2014 include a new earn-a-bike partnership with the Gateway Center for the Homeless, hiring an executive director and volunteer coordinator to help solidify SoPo’s organizational structure, and expanding our existing programs and open shop hours to get more bikes to more people.

With these goals in mind, SoPo is launching our first ever Annual Fundraising Campaign. We  know you are a friend of SoPo and you appreciate what we do. As you take time to think about giving this year, we ask that you please consider showing your support by donating to SoPo. Any amount you can spare will go a long way in helping SoPo expand its reach and improve its operations.

2nd Annual Red Clay Ramble

image

Thanks to the Milledgeville Bicycle Club for hosting the Red Clay Ramble. It was once again a great event. There were over 150 riders cycling through the gravel roads of GA. The day was sunny, it was fun, and great volunteers.
SoPo even had some energy at the end of the ride to give a SoPo High Five to a volunteer at the finish line.

Helping and Teaching

A fellow commuter had a flat on his way to work. It was a quick lesson in on-the-road flat repair. He was soon back on the road, ready to go.

Pop-cycle Day 2 at King of Pops

It’s going to be a great day to enjoy a King of Pop popsicle and ride your bike along the Beltline. Come by and visit us at the King of Pop window.

From our friends at KoP…

Our first collaborative Garden Party with Sopo Bicycle Cooperative was a pretty awesome time. There were bikes everywhere, donations a plenty, people learning how to maintain their cycles, good cheer, great weather, Memorial Day Weekend…

So, we’ve decided to put on another in case your were out of town for the first!

Sopo Bike Co-op will be out at The King of Pops Garden from 12-4 on Sunday August, 17 doing bike safety checks for anyone who comes by! Learn how to keep your bike in the best condition for every pot-hole Atlanta can throw your way.

Sopo will be taking parts, bikes, gear and $$$ donations all day, so bring any old anything bike related. There will be a KoP prize pack awarded too, to anyone who donates! (ok, anyone can put their name in the hat for the prize, but donations are especially appreciated…)
