QBP and other sponsors announce women's bike mechanic scholarship winners

Published December 18, 2017

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (BRAIN) — QBP has announced the 2018 winners of the women's bike mechanic scholarship.

Thirty-two scholarship recipients will attend a two-week professional repair and shop operations class at United Bicycle Institute in Ashland, Oregon, thanks to support from QBP and sponsors Michelin, Park Tool, SRAM, UBI, Jagwire, Ergon, Saris, Finish Line, Kryptonite, DT Swiss, Surly, Swiftwick, Dero and Stan's NoTubes. This year more sponsors joined the cause, helping to double the size of the program.

The recipients were chosen because of their passion for increasing ridership among underrepresented groups and demonstrated commitment to the projects they're currently working on.

The scholarship covers the winners' tuition and lodging and provides a small stipend to help defray the personal expenses of travel and meals.
