Independence Youth Cycling supports both interscholastic/state-wide and local/bike shop-based teams operating in leagues and series in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. These teams participate in a variety of mountain bike disciplines, each with its own unique characteristics and race formats.

Most Independence Youth Cycling teams operate under NICA, the National Interscholastic Cycling League and NICA’s Pennsylvania program, PICL, the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Cycling League.
