SoPo helps out Georgia Equality with a couple of bikes. The bikes will go to folks who can’t otherwise get a bike. Who knows what opportunities and experiences may come while riding on these SoPo bikes.
SoPo continues our partnership with the International Rescue Committee. The IRC received some bikes from SoPo. It was interesting to hear how these bikes will be used. The bikes will go to adults who can use them for work transportation. Buses have limited routes and set times, most IRC clients do not have a car; a bike opens up their transportation abilities for work. The stories were amazing to hear. We know these bikes will provide some good for the community.
SoPo shared some kids bikes with out friends at the Beltline Bike Shop. It was also a chance for a shop visit. This is one of their shops. Beltline Bike Shop has another shop on English Av in the Vine City neighborhood.
It’s a great program to learn about and contribute. We learned a lot from our visit to the shop. Their impact is really being felt in the neighborhood.
I also learned that skidding (sliding out the rear wheel on a power slide) is now called swerving.
Thanks Tim and Rebecca for the shop tour.
A day at the shop for our partnership with Habitat for Humanity. The participants got lessons on basic bike maintenance, on road safety, and a group ride.
Thanks to Habitat for continuing this amazing partnership. Thanks to Alon’s Bakery for the sweet morning goodies. Thanks to the volunteers for coming out and making this all happen.
A minivan packed full of bikes thanks to Veeam Software. Veeam had a team building activity to build kids bikes. 18 kids bikes were built. They then donated the bikes to a deserving organization.
SoPo will look over the bikes and double check the great work that Veeam Software had done. After, the bikes will go to Whitefoord Elementary school to ‘ve given for their bike club.
A special thanks to Veeam Software for giving back to the community. These bikes will go a long way in kids lives.
PS, Veeam Software also donated 18 helmets.
SoPo is super excited to help out 7 Stages’ Youth Creates summer program. Youth Creates is a experiential learning and performance opportunity for teenagers. Students come from across the US and Internationally to attend.
SoPo continues our partnership with 7 Stages by providing bikes so the students can ride Atlanta.
And mark your calendars for July 25 & 26 for the Youth Creates final show.
Thanks to Heidi for the group photo above.
Also thanks to Bike Friendly Atlanta for donating bikes to the 7 Stages x SoPo Youth Creates partnership.
SoPo through our Charity Bikes program provided a classic bike to The Health Initiative’s annual fundraiser, the Garden Party. The 18th running of the Garden Party was held at The Phillip Rush Center this past weekend. We are glad we helped contribute to support The Health Initiative’s mission.
