Ever wanted to know more about the mechanics behind your bike? To keep talented women working in the bike industry and encourage more women to get out and ride, Minnesota-based Quality Bicycle Products has introduced a women’s bicycle mechanic scholarship. More than 300 women applied for the 16 spots available in the 2016 scholarship round, showing the major interest in this subject. In our second episode on women’s cycling, we talk to the Lori Richman and Rachel Gitajn of QBP and Kyla Forsberg, a scholarship recipient based in Washington, about this program.
