Islabikes might be based in the United Kingdom but they understand how to do business in Portland: The company has donated 14 bikes to the local nonprofit Community Cycling Center.
In a statement released last week Islabikes said their belief of “providing children with a quality cycling experience” coincides with the CCC’s mission. That makes sense because the CCC teaches young people not only how to ride their bikes, but also how to make repairs themselves. If you’ve ever tried to repair or maintain a cheap, department-store bike, you’ll know they are nearly impossible to work on. Islabikes full range of models are known for not cutting corners on function or quality just because they’re made for kids.
With the CCC’s approaching summer bike camp season, the addition of 14 high-quality Islabikes to the fleet will make neighborhood rides and explorations a lot more fun.
Previous to their partnership with the CCC, Islabikes was also a sponsor of the Kid Cross event at the annual River City Bicycles Cross Crusade cyclocross races. The company was founded in the U.K. in 2006 opened its U.S. headquarters in Portland in 2013.
