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!

Don't let winter weather dampen your riding fun! We like to think there's no really bad weather as long as you layer up and keep smiling! (of course always be a good trail steward and stay safe!) Layers, gloves and neck gaiters can help keep you warm on wintery days! #morekidsonbikes #moregirlsonbikes #nobadweather #nobaddays #mountainbiking #winterriding #minnesotamtb

Do you remember your first time mountain biking? We all had to start somewhere! Whether you just started riding last week or have been sending it for years - there's something special and fun about your first ride and first bike! NICA's Partnerships Coordinator, Ricardo Mejia joined NICA from the rugby world and one of his first rides was at our 2019 conference in Sun Valley Idaho on a sweet @trekbikes!

What was a favorite first ride of yours? A favorite first bike?
