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

Some Independence Youth Cycling teams operate under NICA, the National Interscholastic Cycling League and NICA’s Pennsylvania program, PICL, the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Cycling League, as noted below.
