To all the women who have wanted to take on a big, bad-ass bikepacking route in Alaska, read up!
“The “Lael Rides Alaska” Women’s Scholarship is available to one female rider who will design and ride a 1,000 mile route in Alaska during the summer of 2018. Based off of Lael Wilcox’s 2017 summer project to ride all of the major roads in Alaska, this scholarship is intended to enable another woman to engage in her own bicycle adventure in Alaska.”
