The partnership will offer the exclusive, new bikes to residents of Timbers Kiawah—located within a prime oceanfront community where sea turtles commonly nest—and will also have a limited release available for sale to the public.
The companies will unveil the cruisers in Spring 2019 to coincide with the start the nesting season. All proceeds from the bike sales will be donated to the Town of Kiawah's Turtle Patrol program, the impactful group behind protecting Kiawah Island’s endangered turtles.
The beach cruisers feature a custom design by Peter Millar. The aesthetic is beach chic and characterized by a myriad of bright turtles. Bike culture is a key part of the lifestyle on Kiawah Island, and Timbers Kiawah offers exclusive access to the destination’s most scenic trails.
With over 30 miles of bike paths and 10 miles of hard-packed sand for beach biking, Kiawah Island was designed for journeying on beach cruisers. Timbers Kiawah residents can use the bike fleet at their convenience to tour the region’s marshes and forests or navigate to their favorite spots on the ten-mile beach.
Another important aspect of the partnership is turtle conservation education, which will come to life for residents through sessions taught by local experts. Leaders from the Turtle Patrol and more will be engaged to lead education for adults and fun activities for Timbers’ smallest residents, The Timbers Tikes, highlighting the importance of recycling, keeping beaches clean and protecting the Loggerhead sea turtles, which are native to the area.
