Seacoast Area Bicycle Riders (SABR) is a diverse group of bicycle 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.

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.

SABR celebrates all riders!
