Wheels of Steel! Two Queens reflect on their bike ride to the Outkast Concert #Atlast

Like our friends at Spindle ATL, who rode bikes across Atlanta to spell out Outkast on a route map, Wecycle Atlanta LOVES Outkast! To celebrate their 20th anniversary and to witness possibly one of their last shows ever, we planned a bicycle ride to the concert appropriately titled: Wheels of Steel!

Accompanied by two fellow Aliens Wecycle Atlanta asked that they reflect on their experience cycling to the concert and the results are in!


Kaurie reminisces: Not only was it smart to ride to the Outkast concert avoiding high parking prices and having to park far away because parking lots were full, but the actual ride invited peace of mind. It possibly was responsible for making the concert that much better. My whole experience of the day I rode to the Outkast show was nothing short of AMAZING!

Natalia recalls the Epic night: The bike ride allowed me to appreciate the beautiful views of the city that you wouldn't otherwise pay attention to driving past. I love how on the way back I was able to reflect on the concert while the wind's breeze blowed with the light rain drops.... okay I'm getting a little poetic, but truthfully it made the day so much more blissful. I also loved the exercise I got from it.

The Do The Bike Thing movement is gaining momentum! Hop on a bike and catch the vibes! We'll leave you with this...

AJC Says: Wecycle Atlanta Growing Communities, Healthier Kids!

By Rick Badie
Some days, Holderness Street in Southwest Atlanta gets flooded with so many kids riding bikes that it reminds Shawn Deangelo Walton of a "mini Singapor". 

He's partly to blame for the popularity of two-wheeled activity, thanks to a civic-minded small business he started to introduce youngsters to the joy of cycling and gardning. Walton is the founder of Wecycle Atlanta, an operation that stresses WHEELS: Work Ethic, Health, Environment, Economics, Leadership and Sustainability. It does so by giving young people in West Atlanta access to bikes, fresh produce and, of course, cycling!




Wecycle Atlanta aids 225 Atlanta youth get on bicycles this SUMMER!

          This summer Wecycle Atlanta set out to aid getting 100 Atlantan's on bicycles. We missed our mark... by exceeding it! With bicycle donations from Georgia residents and private sponsors Wecycle Atlanta aided in getting 225 youth on bicycles this summer! Through partnership Wecycle Atlanta with the aid of Odyssey Team Inc. distributed 225 bicycles to city of Atlanta youth through Local Boys & Girls' Clubs and residential communities through the 40 Hours and a Bicycle and Life Cycles Programs. 
         WE also want to thank our partners at Odyssey for donating tools to our soon coming Boxcar Bike Shop! We have learned here at Wecycle Atlanta that the more you give the more you receive, so we want to thank everyone who supports us while we get more Atlantan's on W.H.E.E.L.S. #DoTheBikeThing! 













Block Party Huge Success! Just The beginning!


 A rare moment in West Atlanta happened. Some of Atlanta's most influential artist came out to support a community effort driven by community members. On July 26th local artist and Atlanta residents came out to the West Atlanta Community Rally and Block Party in support of Wecycle Atlanta's Do The Bike Thing Bike Shop Indie-Gogo crowd funder and it was a huge success! With the street closed off for pedestrian traffic youth enjoyed cycling safely in their neighborhood while enjoying having their faces being painted, basketball, and hop-scotch!
Atlanta artist weren't the only supporters that came out to make the day grand. In our constant effort to promote health and economics through our W.H.E.E.L.S. model (work ethic, health, economics, environment, leadership, and sustainability) we reached out to Fresh 2 Health to provide locally grown and prepared vegan dishes, West Atlanta's University Wells Fargo to aid with financial literacy and Morehouse School of Medicine Prevention Research Center to make sure that it was more than just a party, but a rally for greater quality of life.




 Special Thanks to guest artist and our sponsors! 







We want to thank everyone that came out to support us on our "FIRST" Block Party of the year! #ToBeContinued
