Win a Scholarship to Bike Alaska

Design your 1,000-mile Alaska ride, and this scholarship could have you on the road this summer

Ultra-endurance bike racer and general bad-ass Lael Wilcox became the world’s most accomplished long-distance bike racer by exploring Alaska on her mom’s road bike after work, by biking from home. Now, for the second time, she is inviting femme-trans-women to design the 1,000-mile Alaska bike adventure of their dreams so she can help make it a reality. 

The winner gets all the gear they need, including a Specialized Diverge, Revelate Designs bags, Pearl Izumi clothing, a Komoot Premium subscription, Easton Wheels, a Wahoo GPS, Big Agnes camping gear, Rene Herse Tires, Bicycle Quarterly, Trail Butter, and $1,500 towards travel.

“I’m motivated by how fast dreams can become reality,” says. Wilcox. Her dream was to ride all the roads in Alaska. In 2017, she completed the 4500-mile project, which launched her career in ultra-endurance racing, and helped her to get to know her state. Apply at laelridesalaska@gmail.com. “We’re looking for positive energy, and a strong desire to experience the remote roads of Alaska and to have some fun,” said Wilcox. Open to all ages and all experience levels.
