Are you new to the Wisconsin Interscholastic Cycling League? New to mountain biking in general? Wondering what to expect at a race? What if racing is not your thing? Have a friend to invite to your team but they don’t know where to start? Joining something new can be daunting but participation in NICA is THE BEST! Everyone is welcome and we can help!
A good starting point is our new ALL ABOUT NICA GUIDE designed to point you in the right direction for all things NICA and WI League. Great for new and returning families. Hope you find it useful and share it with a friend too!
An Adventure Ride is an opportunity for current Teams to ride an adventure course put on by the Wisconsin League. Athletes navigate the course in pods of 4 to 8 riders along with coaches from their own Team, encountering mental and physical challenges along the way. The goal is to complete the course as a Team. We are planning 2 adventure rides in the 2022 season. Camping is available (and highly encouraged) at both events.
Adventure Ride #1 | July 23 at Camrock Adventure Ride #2 | August 20 on CAMBA Trails
Team Adventure Coordinators, If you are interested in having your Team participate in these events, please contact Joe FitzGibbon, League Adventure Coordinator Joseph@wisconsinmtb.org for more information and to have registration opened for your team. Teams must commit to a ride before registration opens to athletes.
Day Camp | July 9 in Marquette, MI
A Wisconsin League Day Camp is a 1-day opportunity for student athletes to ride new trails and to meet other riders from across the League. Riders will check into camp early in the morning (can arrive the day before with family). We will do ice breakers, trail rides, have lunch and some MTB topical presentations. The event ends with a big dinner and all the riders’ parents/guardians are welcome to attend. Camping is available (and highly encouraged) at this event.
Coaches, we need you!! We have riding and non-riding volunteer positions available.If you want to help, please contact Joe FitzGibbon, League Adventure Coordinator, email@example.com
Five teams have recorded more than 130 Teen Trail Corps hours so far this season!! We hope at least 25 WI League teams will log hours this season…..Let’s keep it going!
