ATLANTA, GA– WeCycle Atlanta is delighted to announce the March 31st 2014 launch of its Do The Bike Thing BIKE SHOP crowd funding campaign and the unveiling of our Pop-up Bicycle Shop at the Ashview Community Garden on the SW Atlanta Beltline!
Our mission is to revitalize the communities by encouraging health and wellness, environmentalism and economic development through biking, research and fellowship. We emphasize biking as a healthy lifestyle and an alternate means of transportation that encourages us to engage with our neighbors and the local community while being environmentally conscience.
We are using the momentum of being FedEx’s top 100 Small Business finalist, Introducing our mobile pop-up shop at Atlanta Streets Alive in the West End, and receiving a $24,000 donation from a private donor to raise $50,000 in our Do The Bike Thing: BIKE HUB IndieGoGo Campaign.
Our future Bike HUB space will house:
• WECYCLE ATLANTA’S INNOVATIVE CYCLING AND URBAN GARDENING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMING
• BICYCLE SERVICING AND RETAIL SPACE
• OPEN COMMUNITY MEETING SPACE
• COMMUNITY ART GALLERY
• And More
