  • As a Parent, How Can I Get Involved?
    We love to have more ride leaders. You need to commit to a few rides a month and get your NICA level 1 certification. This requires a background check and a few hours of online courses. We will offer an in-house clinic to help parents be comfortable being ride leaders. If you do not bike, we can still find a place for you. Contact the head coach for more information.
