Ride in Style for a Good Cause

New limited-edition beach cruisers created in partnership by Timbers Kiawah – Ocean Club & Residences and Peter Millar aim to raise awareness for the conservation of endangered sea turtles.

Available for both adults and children, the custom bikes don an original turtle print designed by Peter Millar and will first debut at Timbers Kiawah to mark the start of nesting season, a vulnerable time when guests of Kiawah Island must be most aware.

Residents of the oceanfront property, a prime new offering on Kiawah Island, will have exclusive access to the property’s fleet and can ride the cruisers on the island’s 30+ miles of scenic biking trails. The cruisers will also be available for sale to the public through a limited release. Retail for the cruisers is $1200 and all proceeds will be donated to the Town of Kiawah’s Turtle Patrol program, the impactful group behind protecting the area’s endangered turtles.

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. The sea turtle programming will debut alongside the cruisers in Summer 2019 at Timbers Kiawah, which opened in October 2018.
