As we take time to honor those who have given their lives in service to our country this Memorial Day, we want to express our gratitude for the sacrifices made by so many.

At NICA, we believe in the power of cycling to build strong bodies, minds, and communities. And we recognize that this freedom to ride, and to come together as a community, has been made possible by the sacrifices of those who have served our country.

Today, we honor and remember the men and women who gave their lives in service to our nation, and we express our deep gratitude to all of those who have served or are currently serving.

Let`s strive to embody the values of service, courage, and selflessness that so many have demonstrated.
