The Oregon Interscholastic Cycling League was founded in 2017 as a non-profit 501(c)3 Project League of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). We facilitate youth development through the sport of mountain biking for 6-12 graders and provide the education, training, licensing, and insurance for coaches and volunteers. We also produce high-quality mountain bike events that emphasize the value of participation, camaraderie, positive sporting behavior, and well-being over competition.
In addition to our race series, our youth mountain bike programming includes trail maintenance, bike packing, and mountain biking skills clinics. Note that these programs provide more than just physical activity; they are the catalyst for an improved quality of life through outdoor recreation, meaningful relationships, and a supportive community.
The Oregon League
- Welcomes youth and their families to the sport of mountain biking
- Rides responsibly and safely
- Trains adults that have interest in working with youth (as a coach or otherwise)
Our vision is to empower the lives of Oregon’s youth and communities through the sport of mountain biking.
We build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling.
