Raised by 14 people in 1 month
In cooperation with Kids on Bikes, Barnett Bicycle Institute, Trails End Taproom and the Watkins family we are excited to bring into existence the "Tim Watkins Bicycle Mechanic Scholarship". We are looking to start the initial fund of this scholarship though this fundraiser. This amount will be for two students.

Tim Watkins was a respected bike mechanic at multiple shops across Colorado Springs, and started his own shop several years ago in Monument called Balanced Rock Bike and Ski.

He is credited with helping establish many of the trails west of Palmer Lake and he mentored and taught countless people the fundamentals of riding. Seeing only fit that Tim existed to further mountain biking, this scholarship aims to do the same.

Local COS recipients will be equipped with the expertise and connections from this scholarship. Recipients will be able to affect and change the Colorado Springs bike community. Through hands-on learning, component-by-component study, and formal lecture, scholarship recipients come away with the skills to advance their careers in the bike industry, gain advanced mechanical knowledge, and deepen their bike industry network.

The scholarship funding will be maintained by friends of Tim Watkins along with Trails End Taproom. Kids on Bikes will select the recipients of the scholarship with their strong understanding of the community and those that best fit the model. Barnett Bicycle Institute, the leading mechanic school in the country, will train and equip recipients.
