The QBP Bike Mechanic Scholarship is for women, transgender, non-binary, gender-non-conforming, two spirit, and intersex individuals who work across the USA (and starting this year, Canada) in bike shops, hoping to gain more mechanical proficiency and certification. Kelsey Harrington came to us from Roanoke, Virginia as the General Manager for Downshift Bikes and Brews. With more confidence behind her hands, Harrington now leads educational workshops while growing her role in the maintenance part of the shop. Bloody elbows and a $h!t-eating grin after the LIV-sponsored ride; are how I remember Harrington's enthusiasm!
