We are pleased to announce the formation of the Michigan Scholastic Cycling Association (MiSCA).
The MMBA approved a motion for the formation of the Michigan Scholastic Cycling Association committee with Steve Kinley as the director, charged with carrying out the mission stated as follows:
• The Michigan Scholastic Cycling Association works to establish and maintain safe, quality scholastic cycling programs. The Association is responsible for establishing a program that will:
• Provide students who have the desire to race bicycles with the coaching and camaraderie that will help them achieve both competitive and non-competitive cycling 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 bike racing across the state;
• 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 lifelong sport.
