Are you ready to help us get #moregirlsonbikes? Here’s how you can help, right now: click this link and “like” our NICA GRiT Facebook page. You can then follow, share, and participate in League events designed to get #moregirlsonbikes.
Our new outreach initiative, NICA GRiT MN (previously known as “Crank Sisters”) encourages high school girls to become racers and women to become coaches in the MN League. Through networking, knowledge sharing, scholarships, league and fee discounts, and coaching rebates, NICA GRiT MN will be the channel to overcoming fears, setting goals, and learning how racing and coaching in the MN League is both rewarding and the basis for a healthy lifestyle.
Want to help out? Email GRiT MN Director Nicole Butler to volunteer.

Coach Erik’s older blog posts can be found on sites.google.com/site/highlandmtbteam/news. He started these in 2009 (!), but 2014 is when it switched to supporting high school mountain biking.
