Seacoast Velokids is a local organization that aims to teach kids mountain biking skills. Velokids has several after school programs at 4 local elementary schools where we teach basic mountain biking skills. They also do an annual Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day at a local trail once or twice a year that families can attend. Additionally, we do a summer Sunday ride program at a local trail where parents can drop their kids off and their kids can ride with the coaches for a few hours. Colonial Bicycle Company staff member Peter Mead currently serves as a board member and coach.
All of this is done FREE of charge to any kid thanks to local businesses and local community donations. Help us and donate today!
Mr. Fox Composting
In addition to riding our bikes, Colonial Bicycle Company is committed to keeping New Hampshire green in several other ways. One of these is patronizing the locally-owned Mr. Fox Composting program. Mr. Fox Composting is a local compost organization we take all of our compostable trash to instead of it going into a landfill. We feel that taking small steps like this will keep New Hampshire beautiful for longer.
League of American Bicyclists
The League of American Bicyclists represents bicyclists in the movement to create 28 safer roads, stronger communities, and a bicycle-friendly America. Colonial Bicycle Company donates $1 from every helmet purchased in our store to their Bicycle-Friendly America initiative and encourages their customers to get involved with the League.
