About Us

Who We Are

The Pittsburgh East Composite Mountain Bike Team works to establish and maintain a safe, quality high school and middle school mountain bike program. 


The program is responsible for establishing a climate that will:

  • Provide students who have the desire to mountain bike with the coaching and camaraderie that will help them achieve both competitive and non-competitive cross-country mountain biking goals in a safe and enjoyable manner;
  • Develop an awareness of what it is to be an amateur athlete that is both gracious and respectful to their community
  • Create an environment in which they may discover new friendships and find role models
  • Guide students toward learning new skills and disciplines, and spread the foundations of mountain bike racing across the U.S.
  • Foster a responsible attitude toward the use of trails and wilderness;
  • Promote the value of cycling to our community as a mode of transportation and as a lifelong sport.

NICA

The National Interscholastic Cycling Association is our lead organizational body.  They provide training, insurance and guidance for our Pennsylvania league.  Founded in 2009, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (“NICA”) develops interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States. NICA provides leadership, services and governance for regional leagues to produce quality mountain bike events, and supports every student-athlete in the development of strong body, strong mind and strong character through interscholastic cycling.
