“As someone who can’t drive and loves to be outside walking, running and biking, there is a real lack of awareness of how difficult it is to get to “outdoor” opportunities without a car. Kimberly has tapped into a deep need here, both for those of us who don’t have other options, and those who want to recreate more sustainably.

I can’t wait to use these Treks to access new and beautiful places throughout our state and our country!”
