Founded in 2009, NICA develops mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States. With only two regions and 700 participants at its inception, NICA now includes 19 separate regions and over 11,000 student-athlete and 4,000 licensed coach participants nationwide. The rapid development has made NICA one of the nation’s fastest growing high school and middle school participation sports.
