WE GIVE BACK TO OUR VETERANS THROUGH MTB VETS
ABOUT MTB VETS
WHY WE RIDE
MTB Vets exists exclusively for our veterans. It’s an honor and privilege to provide our veterans an outlet to seek health, happiness, and purpose through a mountain biking community of comrades. We ride – we thrive!
WHO WE ARE
We are veterans who understand the potential challenges of transitioning into and thriving within the civilian community – the lack of purpose, the flashbacks to dark days and memories of good days, the longing for brotherhood camaraderie, and the loss of identity. When you join the military, you join a big family; when you leave the military, it may feel like you’ve left your family ... which is uncomfortable and unnerving.
We understand because we’ve been there.
We want to help because we’ve lost brothers to the darkness of those challenges.
We know we can make a difference.
As proud veterans and enthusiastic mountain bikers, we firmly believe in ‘trail therapy’. The trail challenges the body, stimulates the mind, and soothes the soul … and your riding companions become family. You belong.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
To reach and provide for as many veterans as possible, we need your help!! We graciously accept your donations of money, equipment, and/or time. Your donations help us provide not only our services, but also full equipment for riders in need.
Many thanks to our recent awesome contributors – we appreciate you!

Fresh Bikes started in 2008 when Shawn returned from Colorado and his time with Yeti Cycles.
Shawn oversaw final quality control before bikes shipped from Colorado to shops across the globe.
Starting small - Fresh Bikes began as a mobile bike service and demo operation out of Shawn’s truck.
Fresh Bike Service would set up at local trail heads and free service. Coverage and support grew from handing out business cards and booking appointments, to offering neutral support at the Dirty Spokes & Chain Buster Racing Series, and the Cartersville DH Races.
Fresh Bikes operated as a mobile business until 2011 when we opened our brick and mortar location next to Big Creek Park and Mountain Bike Trails.
We love our location! It gives Fresh Bikes the unmatched ability to host group rides, allow for customer demos and rent bikes for exploring the greenway and trails.
THE FRESH CREW
Shawn Brunner is the owner of Fresh Bike Service, Inc. and handles the day-to-day operations and management. With over 18 years in the bike industry, Shawn has worked as an Assistant Operations Manager at Yeti Cycles – one of the top bike manufacturers in the world. He has published articles in cycling magazines and wrote several owners’ manuals for Yeti Cycles. He has produced, directed, and starred in an instructional bicycle maintenance and repair DVD, “WRENCHED”. He has also served as neutral support at the Dirty Spokes and Chain Buster Endurance Series, and served two years on the Board of Directors for RAMBO-SORBA.
Retired Army First Sergeant Bill Langham served more than 22 years in the US Army, as an Airborne Ranger, Trainer, Mentor and Leader. Throughout his highly decorated career as a Non-Commissioned Officer, he conducted combat operations during Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Upon retirement, Bill transitioned to the private sector. He served and led High Threat Dignitary Protection Security (HTP) teams for a leading provider of mission support and integrated security services to government agencies and multinational corporations in high risk and complex environments across the globe. Returning stateside, Bill focused on delivering training and keynote addresses on leadership development, combining leadership principles with practical execution.
However, with transitioning into the civilian community, Bill found his identity slipping and his heart breaking with the loss of military friends by suicide. Mountain biking became his therapy and the mountain biking community his brotherhood.
Experiencing ‘trail therapy’ firsthand, Bill knows it can and will help other veterans and thus, founded MTB Vets. His lifelong commitment to serving our great country continues in this new journey with MTB Vets.
The Fresh Bikes shop is located off of Old Alabama Road in the Holcomb Bridge Crossing shopping center. We are a couple hundred yards south of the Big Creek Park mountain bike trails and the Big Creek Greenway trail system. This allows us to ride, test and demo bikes, offering an unmatched experience for our customers.
We are also within riding distance of the Riverside/Azalea road biking areas and the City of Roswell's bike-friendly Mayor's Ride route.
