A new scholarship from Trek and the National Interscholastic Cycling Association is aiming to increase diversity in mountain biking.
The Pathfinders Scholarship is a new initiative from Trek and the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) to broaden access to the sport by providing the equipment and resources needed to get out and ride. The program will offer up to 250 kids from underrepresented backgrounds with a Trek Marlin bike, helmet, shoes, accessories and kit. Included in the package is a stipend for the NICA League and entry fees for a full season of racing and events.
This new program forms a part of Trek's 'All-In' plan where the company drew up actionable steps towards racial equality. Part of this plan was to involve kids from more diverse backgrounds in cycling.
