Kona Bicycles donates 500 bikes to Utah high schoolers

PARK CITY, Utah – Kona Bicycles recently announced its generous donation of 500 mountain bikes to the Utah High School Cycling League, a non-profit organization focused on developing high school mountain biking in Utah.

According to a press release, Kona Bicycles’s parent company, Kent Outdoors, recently moved its headquarters to Park City. The company was eager to make a local impact.

Both Kent and Kona prioritize fostering community relationships, and this recent philanthropic initiative demonstrates that commitment by promoting youth engagement in cycling.

“Kona’s donation will greatly assist in lowering financial barriers to participate in the league. This is the single largest product donation the league has ever received,” said​ Dallen Atack, league director of the Utah High School Cycling League.

The 500 bicycles donated by Kona, renowned for their suitability across diverse riding styles and skill levels, aim to furnish students with high-quality equipment. This initiative allows them to discover the joys of cycling, actively engaging in league events and training programs.

“These bikes will be given to teams to build a bike loan program for student-athletes and coaches that may not have a suitable cross-country mountain bike,” Atack said.
