Girls on Bikes
Girls have 1.3 million fewer opportunities to play high school sports than boys. The National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) and Emily Batty are here to change that. Learn more: www.nationalmtb.org
This was filmed a few years back with girls from the Oakland Composite teams.
More than a sport
Mountain biking is for everyone. You can be slow, you can be fast, you can be experienced, you can want a new challenge, you can simply want to be around friends. Whatever you want to get out of it, mountain biking gives more in return. Whatever level of ability, mountain biking changes lives. The National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) is the governing body for middle and high school mountain biking in the United States. The idea is that mountain biking can be about more than athletics, and NICA believes in helping student athletes develop strong bodies, minds, and characters. In 2016, Trek donated $1 million to NICA. You can make a difference. To learn how you can volunteer or start a team or league in your community, visit nationalmtb.org.
