Seacoast VeloKids is a non-profit organization dedicated to the introduction and promotion of cycling to the youth of New Hampshire's Seacoast communities. Currently we are developing a mountain biking program, with a five-year vision to expand into multiple disciplines across a variety of age groups. Our goal is to promote cycling as a lifelong activity as part of a healthy lifestyle. We are a proud division of the non-profit Seacoast Area Bike Routes (SABR).
Elementary programs are underway and we are running our 6 week after school program at three local elementary schools. We are busy putting together the finishing touches our our Summer Ride Program - learn more here.
Seacoast VeloKids was born from the simple desire to get more kids involved with cycling. As a group of avid cyclists, many with young children of our own, we wanted to expose more local children to the simple joy of cycling and the tremendous cycling resources available in the Seacoast of New Hampshire. See Our Mission and Our Vision for more.
Kids + Bikes = :)
Set a kid riding and you set them on a winning course for life. While cycling is a sure way to stimulate a child’s mind and body, our ultimate goal is foster an environment that helps them enjoy the outdoors in a way that makes them feel good about themselves. Whether our program leads to a lifelong love of recreational riding or illuminates professional-level potential, we know each child will have a smile on their face each time they pedal with us. It is this joy that motivates all of our efforts. Kids + Bikes = VeloKids
Kids and Mountain Biking
Our program is designed to get kids riding with confidence on simple trails and paths. We will start on grass and in fields to build leg strength as well as introduce that "off road" feel. As the program progresses we will introduce trails and paths. For more information see the Kids Program page.
Our summer ride program is on Starting July 13th. Got a kid who wants to ride with other kids? Got a kid looking to take his or her riding to the next level? Check out our summer ride program.
