We love the balance that the bicycle brings to the world.

We believe bicycles add vibrancy to our communities.

When we’re out in the world pedaling around, we’re happier and healthier and more deeply connected to the people and places within our neighborhoods. We dream about the day when all towns and cities are more bicycle-friendly and that’s why we give time, resources and profits to organizations working for sustainable transportation solutions.
