  • Volunteering for SABR is a great way to help make the Seacoast a better place for bicycling, and have fun doing it. My wife Heidi and I actually met volunteering for SABR at the Portsmouth Criterium kids race! Who knew bike advocacy could change your life?

  • I like volunteering with SABR because I am passionate about bicycling – whether it’s to get groceries or to simply feed my soul by going for a ride. I like knowing that I am helping to create or to preserve access for people on bikes, which results in a cleaner, greener, and healthier community.

  • I love working with SABR because of it’s vitally important mission — to make the Seacoast better for biking.  AND because of the awesome people involved.  It’s always about the people!

  • Riding my bicycle in the Seacoast has introduced me to a whole community of cyclists who are happy to share great experiences. Volunteering for SABR allows me to share the experience of cycling with our broader Seacoast community and encourage more of my friends, neighbors, colleagues, and lawmakers to join in the freedom and joy of riding one’s bike.

    Ian Sleeper

  • Get involved with SABR and I promise you will make new cycling friends.
    But there’s more: Meet people you enjoy spending time with that share your vision for a better world too.

About Us


Who We Are

Seacoast Area Bike Riders (SABR) is a diverse group of bike riders in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire and contiguous parts of Maine. Our vision is to make cycling the new normal on the Seacoast and in our culture. SABR promotes cycling as a way of life for recreation and utility for all Seacoast residents through advocacy, education, and events.


Our History

In 1992 a group of local bicyclists formed Seacoast Area Bicycle Routes (SABR). The intent was to ensure that bicycle infrastructure would be part of regional planning initiatives following the closure of the Pease Air Base. During the three decades since then the group has helped shape some of the region’s most significant bicycle infrastructure.

In 2019 SABR officially changed part of its name – from “Routes” to “Riders.” We wanted to broaden our mission to not only advocate for bicycle infrastructure but also to promote bicycle use as part of a changing way of life. As Seacoast Area Bicycle Riders, we now offer a number of programs, activities, rides, and events – all of which are designed to encourage more people from many different segments of our population to get on their bikes. We continue to advocate strongly for improved bicycle infrastructure. The following projects reflect our successes and track record.
