The National Interscholastic Cycling Association, NICA, is a non-profit organization that has one job: to get kids stoked about riding bikes. Local communities across the country are starting their own chapters: with parents, teachers, and business owners banding together to start their own chapters to coach these youth cyclists.
NICA focuses on building on-the-bike skills through weekly practices, and team building through group rides.
NICA's mission statement: "We build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling."
BYCA is the Brevard Youth Cycling Association which was established as a starting point for kids in 4th and 5th grade before moving up to NICA.
Sycamore Cycles is proud to sponsor the local NICA chapter, the "Ridgeline Renegades."
