youth Cycling in gorham, NH

The COÖS CYCLING CLUB, in partnership with the Gorham Rec. Department, has launched a new youth bike initiative, Pete’s Bikes. The goal includes reducing barriers to access the sport for local kids, encourage an active lifestyle, and a lifelong love of cycling.

With donations in memory of Pete Brockett’s, the CCC has contributed $4,000 and the Gorham Rec. Department has raised $2,697; combined we have purchased 9 Kona mountain bikes to be used by local kids in collaborative CCC/Rec. Department programming.

A key and final piece is to purchase a 5x10 enclosed trailer to store and transport the bikes.
