One of the most generous Santas around lives in Davidson. How generous? This year Andy Beard and his Spokes Groups charity will need to hire a sleigh that can hold 2,075 bicycles for children with needy families!

It began 24 years ago when Andy responded to the call of the Christmas spirit, packed up a few toys, and delivered them to the Salvation Army. While there, he watched a client jump and leap for joy on receiving a bicycle for her child. Andy remembers thinking, “If the cost of a bike could make somebody that happy, there are a lot of people in this county who have lots of money to buy bikes and make other households happy.”
