NICA sees a future where every American youth has the opportunity to build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling. Founded in 2009, NICA develops interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States. NICA is an organization that creates and operates mountain bike racing leagues for middle school and high school students around the country.
Ohio Mountain Bike League (OMBL) is the statewide organization for all NICA teams across Ohio fulfilling the mission stated above. In 2021, the OMBL launched the first official race series with four races. Locally, one of the races was hosted at John Bryan State Park in Yellow Springs - this will be the home course for our region.
