In April (2014) NICA was chosen to receive a $75,000 matching grant from Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation Sports Matter.  The task was simple: raise $75,000 in five weeks and the Foundation would match that amount.

This page was created to acknowledge and thank members of the bike industry who were called upon, collectively, to help get more kids on bikes. Without the help of the bike industry – and the help of all NICA sponsors – taking NICA Coast to Coast by 2020 might be less of a reality.

The NICA mission is to provide the opportunity for all students to participate in high school mountain biking in a competitive, fun and all-inclusive environment building strong bodies, mind and character. To deny anyone NICA’s leadership is to deny kids a life-changing opportunity.  Together we can vanquish the phrase, “I wish I’d had that.”
