Our friends at Oregon Timber Trail have a new initiative to raise money for a BIPOC/FTW/Q Scholarship Fund:
In an effort to include those often overlooked or excluded by the cycling and outdoor recreation communities, the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance is offering five $1,000 scholarships to support and encourage Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color as well as gender-expansive, trans, non-binary, women, and queer riders to make their adventure on the Oregon Timber Trail a reality.
This $1,000 scholarship can be used for anything you need to begin your adventure at the Grand Depart on July 10th: gear; travel expenses; food; rent; child care; whatever you need.
Along with the $1,000 scholarship, BikeFlights has generously donated five $300 shipping vouchers and BikeFlights Bike Boxes in case any scholarship recipients need to ship their bikes to/from the trail. We hope that you can join us and look forward to learning more about you with your application.
Learn more and apply here before the April 30th deadline.
Please donate to this fund here, we still need to raise $3,700 to make this a reality.
