This scholarship is available to any college student who aspires to live a healthy, active life while in college. Dave’s goal is to inspire the “Freshman 15” in that new college students begin riding 15 miles a week instead of adding 15 pounds of fat their first semester!
Even if you never want to go pro — or have never ridden a bike — college is an excellent place to pick up the sport. Many students take on cross-country bicycle tours or become regular cycling commuters while in college.
Dave found fitness while in college through cycling, and wants to get more college kids on their bikes!

Dave’s Bike Site provides helpful reviews, buying guides and how-to tips for cyclists. It is our goal to get more people riding by making cycling more affordable and by helping shoppers find the best deals on bikes. We provide reviews on Hybrid bikes and mountain bikes as well, that are based on Dave’s years of riding and repairing bicycles.
