Each year the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) donates a portion of its proceeds to a local charitable partner. For the 2018, NAHBS has selected the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program (CCAP).
The Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program’s mission is to ensure that Connecticut’s youth and their families have access and exposure to an organized state-wide youth cycling league. Additionally, youth and their parents should be able to see a clear avenue that allows them to develop as far as their ambition, skills and abilities can take them. The sport of cycling teaches a child or young adult a wealth of values, social skills and mindsets that help them become successful in every aspect of their life, and the CCAP is proud to provide kids across the state with the opportunity to participate in a safe and positive team-based environment.
Since it’s beginning five years ago, the CCAP has helped youth cycling programs reach unprecedented proportions in Connecticut. More than 40 Connecticut school districts and towns have created CCAP-registered cycling programs or are in the process of establishing cycling clubs and teams. In addition, more than 30 youth specific events are hosted annually by the CCAP.
