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!

🔔Let`s make some noise for Student-Athlete Leadership Award recipient, Drew Bosland!🔔
Drew is from the texasmtb and says NICA has provided him with new friends, memories, and unforgettable race weekends.

"I love practicing with my team regularly and I especially love serving on the Student Advisory Cabinet with the Texas League," says Drew. "This opportunity allows me a unique leadership position with the League and I have learned so much. Mountain biking with NICA has provided me, and my family, with the best community we could have asked for!"

We absolutely love how Drew and his family have found their spot in the NICA community. ❤️ What an awesome testament of leadership!

By prioritizing the development of the whole athlete, rather than just their performance on the bike, NICA is helping to create a new generation of young people who are not only skilled cyclists but also embody values like teamwork, perseverance, and empathy.

Did you know that the NICA community added 42,750 HOURS of service to their local trails in 2022? How awesome is that?! Through the Teen Trails Corps (TTC) program, NICA student-athletes are giving back and advocating for trails across the country.

A key player in this movement: the Teen Trails Corps coach! #LinkInBio
