Who we are

Founded in 2009, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) develops interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States. Learn more here.

Coaches Resources

NICA coaches are role models and teachers who are open to learning the best practices of youth mountain bike coaching and actively work to hone their leadership skills on and off the bike. Learn more here.

Get Involved

Want to get involved, volunteer your time or donate to support getting more kids on bikes? Learn more here.

NICA exists because of the generous support of our founding sponsors, national sponsors and our donors. If the interscholastic cycling movement moves you, please consider donating and help get one more kid on a bike!

As some of our leagues are able to start hosting activities again this spring - we want to give a HUGE shout out to all our amazing NICA Coaches, League Directors, Race Crews and Volunteers who are dedicated to getting #morekidsonbikes and #moregirlsonbikes! THANK YOU! Who's one of your favorite NICA Coaches or volunteers that needs a shoutout?

Celebrating #BlackHistoryMonth - we'd like to highlight @marylandmtb's Patterson Park Team. The team was formed in 2018 to introduce Baltimore City youth to mountain biking and works with a local middle school and community center to provide gear and a practice space for the all-female team. While their 2020 season was different, the team still held events, including visiting a Black Lives Matter art exhibition that was held in Baltimore's Patterson Park - also the team's namesake!
