Groups We Support
We're proud to support these great organizations all of which believe in bicycling not only as one of the best sports, but also as a way of life.
The New England Mountain Bike Association is New England's premiere mountain bike group, with 18 chapters throughout the region.
The International Mountain Bicycling Association was started in 1988 and was formed to help foster growth in the sport of mountain biking by encouraging low-impact riding.
Started in 1999 as the national coalition of bicycle retails and suppliers with the goal of getting more people on bikes.
Bike New York's mission since 1977 has been to promote and encourage bicycling and bicycle safety through education, public events, and collaboration with community and government organizations.
