Many of you know how much Nat and I believe in mountain biking and how much we've put toward growing the next generation of mountain bikers. In 2013, Nat and I started a High School Mountain Bike team within the Colorado High School Cycling League (an affiliate of NICA). Since then he and I have continued to spread our passion for cycling within the Colorado community and beyond.
In 2014, I took a seat on the Board of Directors for the Colorado High School Cycling League. Today we are seeing unprecedented numbers of participants growing close to 20% every year. This fall as racing commences for the 2016 season we will see over 1000 racers participating in the league.
Today I ask you to join me in helping to support something I feel so passionate about. I'm seeking to raise $1000 in an effort to allow three students to participate in the entire series this fall.

COLORADO HIGH SCHOOL CYCLING LEAGUE -
Since 2010, the Colorado High School Cycling League has positively impacted the lives of students from the saddle of a mountain bike. Our cross-country mountain bike program builds strong minds, bodies, and character in an inclusive environment where all are treated equally.
We believe "kids deserve dirt" and our programs need to be accessible to all, regardless of financial circumstances. We need your help to support the 2016 scholarship fund. Your donation brings this exceptional experience to more youth and teams. Know your simple effort of getting more kids on bikes, has a lasting impact. Exposure to nature and committed mentors are effective prescriptions for positive change.
"I'd like to thank you for granting me this scholarship. All you've done for my family and me has helped more than you possibly could have known. Mountain biking is one of my favorite activities and I'm full of gratitude that you made this a possibility for me." - Scholarship Recipient
“The league has given me something to look forward to, and I have met some of my best friends because of it. Not only has the league taught me racing skills, it has taught me countless life lessons, and I can't thank you enough!” –Molly Madden
