    Our Bikes Your Cause

    Founded in 2016, Kind Bikes is the brainchild of co-founder Jimmy Stubbs.

    By Julie Senger

    Anyone who has spent any amount of time in Georgia knows that the line between spring and summertime is often a blurry one.

    For many of us, “home” includes winding neighborhood roads lined with towering pines, plush fescue lawns sprinkled with azaleas and dogwoods and roads dense with SUV’s loaded with soccer gear, children and the family dog. Compared to “home” around the globe, suburban life in Atlanta is mostly quiet, predictable and safe.
