Wecycle Atlanta Partners with The Local Boys and Girls Club!

On a mission to engage youth in life-sustaining practices, Wecycle Atlanta teams up with The Harland Boys and Girls Club to help youth earn bicycles and teach them about community service.

The month of June set a precedent for Wecycle Atlanta. We held our first pilot program at The Boys and Girls club. We couldn't have asked for a better place to start our journey as we set out to spread the Bike Gear and Garden Gospel! The youth were truly engaged in every assignment, and were quick to show off their new bicycle maintenance and safety maneuvering skills to the staff and their parents. Their latest lesson included: naming every part of the bicycle, quickly changing tires, and, lastly, building reservoir systems at the Ashview Community Garden, our weekly community service site.

The program's finale had the youth participating in a bike ride around their own community taking them to Morehouse College, Spelman College and Clark Atlanta University! At the rides end, they settled at the Ashview Community Garden. Here, the girls and boys learned about the fruits and vegetables growing in the garden, built reservoir systems out of recycled Gatorade bottles and were introduced to composting after finishing their healthy, organic snacks. The youth were excited to be engaged in community service that will eventually provide healthy and organic food to the surrounding community!

What a group of youth! We are proud to work with The Harland Boys and Girls Club to develop health-conscious and community oriented-youth!










The Garden That Bikes Built: How Wecycle Atlanta and its programing restored a Community Garden on the Atlanta Belt-Line!

It all started with 3 teens, and 5 young adults eager to get bicycles. The funds weren't there initially, but that didn't stop us from figuring out how we can help youth to Do The Bike Thing. What we did have was idle time and able bodies; and, what the community needed was something beautiful and engaging in the Ashview Heights Community. Upon walking on the Southwest corridor of the Atlanta BeltLine we saw the remnants of the once thriving Ashview Community Garden populated by tall grass and discarded things. So we began to pull volunteers in with bicycles as the incentive through Wecycle Atlanta's 40 Hours and a Bike Program.

The Garden is now a hub for youth and community engagement, learning and bicycle lovers!

This is a picture story of how we started from the bottom! 































The.... Beginning ;-)

MACC ATTACK rides to the CAPITOL!

ONE LOVE! Thats what members of MACC and prior participants of the famed ONE LOVE century ride yelled at the ending of 2013 Georgia Ride To The Capitol! MACC members came from all directions to support legislature to make streets safer for cycling including the West End, Atlantic Station, and Decatur in the snow! Morning temperatures reached as low as 31 degrees within the walls of down town Atlanta where sunlight and insulation were blocked by our staple granite city buildings. The snow and freezing weather didn't stop some 400+ riders for coming out to the Atlanta City Capitol in solidarity. Thats ONE LOVE at its core!
