Share the Ride 2017

Help NICA Share the Ride today!

Help us change lives through cycling! NICA is the leading interscholastic cycling organization in the United States. Since 2009, NICA has grown to 21 regions around the US, we have impacted the lives of nearly 27,000 student-athletes, and have an amazing volunteer corps of more than 10,000 coaches. You can help Share the Ride in 2017 by making a donation today. Help us reach our goal of $150K by December 31.


NICA is driven to provide equal and inclusive opportunities for all American youth to try mountain biking. Your support will help fuel the following programs:


  • Scholarships for loaner bike and participation fee programs for underserved student-athletes and those with economic need;

  • Student-Athlete programs such as Girls Riding Together (GRiT), Teen Trail Corp (TTC) and the NICA Adventure Program; and

  • Grants provided to new leagues to aid them during the critical pre-launch period.

NICA is truly changing kids’ lives through cycling! Meet Jesús, from our NorCal League, who began mountain biking last year on the Oakland Composite High School Mountain Bike Team. Riding a loaner bike, his goal was to finish every race he started in his first season – a goal he achieved. As a direct result of his experience on the team, Jesús says he is a healthier and more proactive person who spends more time outside.
