The Colorado High School Cycling League is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit youth development organization, that serves students in Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico. Our purpose is to build strong minds, bodies, and character, guided by the principles of inclusivity and equality. The league produces an interscholastic mountain bike race series, provides training and education to support coaches teams. We provide a comprehensive infrastructure to grow youth cycling in a fun, safe, and professional manner.
We strongly believe that prevention reduces the need for intervention. Together we foster healthy habits in youth, develop self-confidence, cultivate leadership, and strengthen family bonds one pedal stroke at a time.
We hope that Colorado League student-athletes graduate with confidence in mountain biking as a sustainable, inclusive, and healthy way of life.
Participants learn about friendship, sportsmanship, discipline, and professionalism in athletics.
We have a strong ethos of stewardship towards our trails and community, fostering a lifetime love of the wilderness.
The Colorado League was founded in 2009. The first season of competition was in the Fall of 2010. The program hosts an interscholastic high school cross-country mountain bike race series, and provides training and education to teams and coaches, regardless of experience or level of expertise. The purpose is to build strong minds, bodies, and character, guided by the principals of inclusivity and equality, one pedal stroke at a time.
Races are open to any high school student regardless of skill level. Teams from southern Wyoming to northern New Mexico participate. To learn more about joining your local team, please visit our Teams page.
The Colorado League actively partners with high schools as they develop and start programs for their students. The Colorado League assists these programs and teams by providing yearly coach development courses. Having supportive schools, coaches, and families, as well as dedicated student-athletes, the Colorado League aims to bring communities together through mountain biking.
