The NorCal High School Cycling League was organized in 2001 to provide competitive mountain biking programs for students in grades 9 to 12. With the cooperation of local race organizers, our partners, and our sponsors we are able to provide a high quality mountain racing experience. Regardless of ability level, the NorCal League is committed to providing a positive experience for all student-athletes.
In 2013, the NorCal League will field well over 50 teams from Northern California high schools, with ridership expected to hit 750. The League is currently undergoing an “Expansion Project” to recruit more riders and more teams in areas where no teams currently exist. Due to our success and the success of our student-athletes, we are moving toward a geographic “Conference” model which will allow us to continue to serve as many high school athletes as possible.
The League is committed to teaching smart riding practices. We believe forming high school teams is the best way for students to learn how to ride in a thoughtful and controlled manner. To learn excellent riding technique or learn how to teach these skills, join our next rider camp or Leaders’ Summit.

The NorCal High School Cycling League works to establish and maintain quality high school mountain bike programs. The League is responsible for establishing a climate that will:
- Provide students who have the desire to mountain bike with the coaching and camaraderie that will help them achieve both competitive and non-competitive cross-country mountain biking goals in a safe and enjoyable manner;
- Develop an awareness of what it is to be an amateur athlete that is both gracious and respectful to their community;
- Create an environment in which they may discover new friendships and find role models;
- Guide students towards learning new skills and disciplines, and spread the foundations of mountain bike racing across the U.S.;
- Foster a responsible attitude toward the use of trails and wilderness;
- Promote the value of cycling to our community as a mode of transportation and as a life long sport.
