the world by bicycle. Discover
the adventure that awaits you. Inspire
others. Whether you are new to bicycle travel or looking to build your outdoor leadership skills, this program from the Adventure Cycling Association
is here to help get you in the saddle and out on the road by providing classes and resources to young adults ages 18 to 30.
Each of their two scholarship tracks are designed to support riders of varying levels of experience and cover the cost of attending one of their education courses. In addition to providing transportation, accommodation, and course fees, Adventure Cycling will also hook you up with the right gear to plan your next adventure. Upon completion of the education courses, scholarship recipients will take what they’ve learned and apply it to an outreach activity to promote bicycle travel in their communities.
Intro to Bike Travel
Do you have dreams of going on a self-supported bicycle tour but aren't quite ready to hit the road? This award is for riders interested in attending one of the ACA's Intro to Road Touring courses. In addition to the course, one scholarship recipient will be outfitted with a new touring bicycle equipped with panniers and other touring gear. Apply for the Intro to Road Touring Scholarship

This award is for riders interested in developing their tour-planning and leadership skills by attending the ACA's Leadership Training Course.
