Building Your Leaders, One Bicycle at a Time. Support Our Program

Our Team.

Andrej Ciho
Founding Director/Mechanic

Andrej, his wife Jessica and their five children live in the historic South Atlanta. Volunteering his time, Andrej started the South Atlanta Bike Shop in the spring of 2010 in response to the challenges facing urban youth in his neighborhood. Before moving forward with the idea he spent time listening to his neighbors and other non-profit leaders to ensure the bike shop would be with and of instead of just for the neighborhood community.
