New in 2018, is a partnership between Sunrise Sunset and the Colorado High School Cycling League. A portion of all registration fees will go to this amazing organization, in an effort to further their mission of building strong minds, bodies and characters in an inclusive, egalitarian environment by engaging juniors in the challenging and exciting world of competitive cycling.
ABOUT THE LEAGUE
Established in 2009, the Colorado High School Cycling League is an independent 501(c)3 and an affiliate of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA), serving students in Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico.
The inaugural race series for the Colorado League was the Fall of 2010 with 183 student athletes participating, representing 20 teams from throughout Colorado and southern Wyoming. The Colorado League participation grew in 2016 to 1,076 student athletes from 67 teams. The Colorado season includes a four race series in the fall with a State Championship race. The primary focus is to deliver a memorable experience, where leadership and camaraderie are fostered. The League actively helps the formation of new high school teams throughout the region.
The League is an exceptional way for high school students to develop a healthy lifestyle and explore the sport. Often League racers participate in collegiate cycling and national and international competition. Several NICA alumni athletes are now racing on professional teams, employed in the cycling industry and becoming community leaders.
