Radical Adventure Riders honors and passes on SJ Brooks’ legacy to future radical adventure riders through an annual scholarship.
With the SJ Brooks Scholarship, RAR seeks to increase access to cycling opportunities by providing financial, gear, and bicycle support for BIPOC cyclists who are trans, non-binary, genderqueer, two-spirit, femme, or women.
*Applications will open in August after fundraising
We’re asking the cycling and outdoors community to help raise $23k to provide twenty SJ Brooks Scholarships for 2021!
Your donation will go directly toward financial stipends for the scholarship recipients to use– to help pursue a spirited bicycle endeavor on their terms. Make a donation today!
Supporting the SJ Brooks Scholarship will expand your company’s footprint on increasing racial equity and gender inclusivity in the cycling community. Learn more on how to get involved and get in touch to support.
For the 2020 SJ Brooks Scholarship, we received 200 applications, and the reality is that there were more qualified applicants than we had scholarships to give. Learn more about the 2020 scholarship, the companies who supported it, and the sixteen recipients.
Past Scholarship Recipients
In 2019 and 2019, RAR provided a total of ten scholarships for BIPOC and FTWN-B folks to attend the WTF BX Summits. Recipients also received financial stipends, gear packages, and bikes based on need. Learn more about the past recipients!
