ERIK'S Junior Apprentice Program

ERIK’S is excited to announce our 4th season of the Junior Apprentice Program for teens & high school students. With the success of NICA and the enthusiasm surrounding mountain bike racing at high schools across the Midwest, students have bikes on the brain.

As a founding sponsor of the Wisconsin and Minnesota NICA leagues - and a supporter of youth cycling in all of our markets - ERIK’S remains committed to the success of student athletes. ERIK’S Junior Apprentice Program is an opportunity to help support students that would like to learn a trade and develop skills as a Bicycle Mechanic. Through this program, students will gain the skills and expertise needed to become a bicycle mechanic.

Upon program completion, successful graduates may be eligible for additional training & part-time employment as a Service Technician at any ERIK’S locations.
