Just imagine…you pull up to the trailhead at Hobbs to go for a ride and there are 50 kids with mountain bikes in their schools team kit about to go on a training ride.
Some exciting times are coming to The Natural State! National Interscholastic Cycling Association aka NICA is launching the Arkansas Cycling League in 2016. What does this mean? It means training and racing opportunities for all junior high and high school students in Arkansas. The NICA mission? To build strong bodies, minds, and character in the students of Arkansas while standing for inclusivity and equality. Sounds pretty great, right!

Dang, where was all this when I was in school. I missed it by 3 years it looks like.
It is not too late to be involved Jake! They are going to need all types of volunteer help. I could see you coaching!?
