We started Prevelo because we love seeing our own kids enjoy the outdoors on their bikes. We think we make pretty awesome bikes. But that's not enough. Kids also need awesome places to ride their bikes. So from the beginning Prevelo Bikes has been committed to supporting organizations that are working to make the world more bike friendly, to open up spaces for bikes, and to preserve outdoor areas for our children to explore and enjoy. When you buy Prevelo, a portion of the purchase price goes to support these efforts. And if you want to give more, we encourage you to click through and contribute directly to these organizations. Or if you are feeling super jazzed about making the world more bike friendly for kids, find a local organization that is working to improve bicycling conditions or trail access and lend a hand or kick in a few dollars. They'll appreciate it. And our children will reap the benefits.
