The National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) is dedicated to youth character development through mountain biking. TAMBA is supporting NICA in Ohio because the missions of our two organizations align so well. TAMBA is not directly affiliated with NICA, but TAMBA Board members are also NICA volunteers.
No kids sit the bench, every kid gets to ride. Kids have a lot of fun and grow at the same time. We use mountain biking as the tool to develop strong minds, strong character and strong bodies.

The Black Swamp Rider team will require participation in trail work. We do this because without volunteers there are no trails, and without trails where would we ride our cool bikes? There are trail days organized by Metroparks Toledo at Oak Openings and by TAMBA at Ottawa-Jermain. Join one and live the "No-Dig, No-Ride". Sign up for one and log your hours on the Volunteer page.
