June is a great time to get out for a ride! With the weather warming and summer vacations being booked to mountain bike hotspots, NICA families have lots to look forward to...
It’s also time for graduation. Teams across the country are celebrating their beloved senior riders. Whether moving on to a collegiate team, signing up to coach, or just commuting around town, NICA’s newest alumni are entering the next stage of their lives with their bikes and their communities by their side.
For our NICA seniors, this time of year is bittersweet. As they finish their last practices and line up for their final races, our seniors are reminiscing about the time they spent on their high school mountain bike teams.
Check out below where Molly-Mae Sims, from the Park City Mountain Bike Team, shared with us her experience of graduating from a team she’s been riding with for 6 years.
Hi, my name is Molly-Mae Sims! I ride for the Park City Mountain Bike Team up in Park City, Utah. This last season was bittersweet for me because it was my senior season. I have been riding with that team for 6 years so it was hard to say goodbye, but I believe that the past two seasons were my best! I was a GRiT Mentor my junior year and a captain my senior year. I was lucky enough to have a great team who supported me in everything I achieved. I don’t know where I would be without my teammates, I am lucky enough to say that my team feels like family and they will always have a place in my heart!
