When my wife Sarah and I started Prevelo Bikes, we made a decision that giving back was a core ethic of our business. From our first year in business in 2017 we have been a member of 1% of the Planet, taking the pledge to give 1% of every sale to non-profits. We're a small company with modest resources, but this giving means a lot to us. It's at the foundation of why my wife and I dropped everything in our life to start a bike company.
