Who are the Otters?
We are a NICA youth mountain bike racing team in St Louis, MO. Our kids are in grades 6-12 and race in the fall of every year all over Missouri. / NICA: nationalmtb.org / Missouri NICA: missourimtb.org.
The Missouri Interscholastic Cycling League was founded in 2018 as a non-profit (501(c)3) Emergent League of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). We facilitate the development of high school and middle school teams/clubs for grades 6-12 and provide the education, training, licensing, and insurance for coaches and volunteers. We also produce high-quality mountain bike events and races that emphasize the value of participation, camaraderie, positive sporting behavior, and well-being over competition.
The focus for 2022 is expanding our reach and providing the best experience for our community! #MOkidsonbikes
OUR VISION is to improve the lives of Missouri’s youth and communities through cycling.
