Great news for Level 2 and 3 NICA coaches: our On-the-Bike 101 skills resources not only have a new look, but updated and refined content.

NICA's coach education team has revised the On-the-Bike (OTB) 101 curriculum to be more concise, clear, and easy-to-use.

Check out the new OTB 101 Manual (found in Level 2 & 3 coach resources), and stay tuned for the new OTB 101 Field Guide. 

To access the new manual, Level 2 and 3 coaches who have completed the OTB 101 training can head over to Pit Zone, click the “Courses, Resources, & Benefits” button, and access their NICA Education Center. Resources are listed on the right side of the Education Center dashboard.


NICA's Coach Education team exists to support a network of thousands of volunteer coaches across the country in their work to develop youth through the sport of mountain biking. NICA's coach education provides coaches with the skills, knowledge, and abilities to be confident and effective leaders and role models who build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling.
