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!

It was a beautiful day to sweat in Philly! Big shout out to everyone who came out to the group ride!
We are stoked for another great day of the NICA Conference 2022!

Congratulations, Chris Mileski, for earning the Shimano Race Production Partner Award! Chris joined NICA National after founding the Missouri Interscholastic Cycling League in 2018. A veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Chris graduated from the University of Arizona in 1997 and went on to a diverse career in the health, wellness, and sports performance industry.
"There are so many awesome things happening across the NICA community, it's hard to pick a favorite," said Chris. "If I had to choose one, I would say NICA race weekends maximize stoke overload not only for me, but the entire Missouri League race staff. The memories created watching our families, volunteers, and coaches come together to support our community of student athletes is life-changing...I look forward to many more years of working to get #MoreKidsOnBikes!"
Chris currently resides in the St. Louis metropolitan area. In his spare time, he loves riding bikes with his wife Kerri and son Kolce, and spending time with their two doods, Ben and Nash.

Juneteenth is a time for celebration. Not only are the trials and tribulations of the Black community being recognized, but emancipation is also recognized and celebrated.
NICA is proud to use our platform to educate others about what Juneteenth is and why it is so important to the Black community. These communities are finally being heard and the sharing of information among cultures and racial inclusion is a big part of what NICA stands for.

Got any camping plans this summer? Don't leave behind the most important gear - your bike! The easiest way to bring your bike with you is to toss it on a velocirax rack.
