BIPOC Scholarship


The Westfjords Way Challenge is the first event of its kind – an ultra endurance race that values a connection with people and the places we ride. Our vision is to host a welcoming event that includes and removes barriers for those who are often excluded by the cycling and outdoor recreation communities.


With this in mind, the WFWC will sponsor five riders that identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color) with travel support and race entry, with two of these being awarded through a scholarship application process.


Scholarship details.

The two scholarships will include free race entry, campground fees and travel support up to $2,000 to support and encourage Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color to compete in the Westfjords Way Challenge. The scholarship can be used for anything needed for the event (flights, outfitting your bike, etc). Race organizers are happy to help coordinate travel and work with you on making sure you have everything you need for a successful race. We hope that you can join us and look forward to learning more about you with your application.
