This past summer, we committed to change the name of our organization by the end of 2020. We acknowledge that both “WTF” and “Bikexplorers” are harmful, with ‘explorer’ using traumatic colonial language and ‘WTF’ centralizing cisgender women while being a recognizable acronym for ‘what the f*ck.” Over the past few weeks, we brainstormed together on new name ideas and we are excited to share the final four picks.
Comment with your fav name via Instagram or Facebook by Monday, January 11th to vote for our new name! We want to hear from you on which one of these best describes our movement & community.
Get Rad Be Radical is an annual publication that changes the way women, trans, femme, and non-binary folx are depicted and represented in the bicycle adventure community.
The first issue, It’s About Bikes, But Not About Bikes, creates a platform where everyone can see and experience what it means to be a FTWN-B person who shreds—featuring 20 contributors focused on themes discussed at the past WTF Bikexplorers Summits from 2018-2019.
We received 200 applications, and the reality is that there were more qualified applicants than we had scholarships to give. Thank you to all who applied and shared parts of yourselves with honesty, vulnerability, and badassery.
Through selecting these sixteen individuals the SJ Brooks Scholarship Committee and WTF BX team sought to honor diversity in race, gender, and class within the cycling community. We believe that these recipients embody cyclists who use the bicycle as a powerful tool for liberation, transformation, community, and mental health.
In memory of SJ Brooks, join us in celebrating this year’s recipients!
