Building strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling
It's NICA's vision that, "every youth is empowered to be part of a thriving and engaged cycling community." With leagues across the United States, NICA has gotten kids on bikes in a way that’s fun, inclusive, equitable, respectful, and community-focused year after year – and growing.
NICA x Saris
Unique in their approach, and united by NICA mission, Saris is proud to support these local leagues for the third year in a row: Arizona, Northern California, Southern California, Colorado, New York, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin. Below are a few ways these local leagues are engaging more youth, and their coaches, through cycling.
Girls Riding Together
The NICA GriT program is a focused effort to get more girls and women riding together and help close the opportunity gap for generations to come.
From riding together to working on trails through NICA Teen Trail Corps, NICA's mission extends beyond pure competition.
Not many youth sports take kids deep into nature the way mountain biking does. NICA's Adventure program taps into the benefits of riding dirt through experiential education.
Leading a team of fast-moving kids on mountain bikes is not for the light of heart. That's why we support coaches with product to help get themselves, and their teams (plus all that extra gear) to the trailhead.
