Scholarship opportunities will be announced in 2020.
The WTF Bikexplorers scholarships are named after SJ Brooks. SJ was the founder of the Seattle chapter of Friends on Bikes, a cycling group that fosters a community for women, trans, femme and non-binary people of color who love riding bikes. SJ was scheduled to speak about Friends on Bikes and be a part of the queer people of color panel at the WTF Bikexplorers Summit. On May 19th, SJ was fatally attacked while biking outside of Seattle. SJ’s death is a huge loss to the cycling community. They were a positive light who worked tirelessly to create change. We send our deepest condolences to SJ’s family and loved ones. Our best wishes go to Izzy as well, who is still recovering.
