York Composite Cycling Club

Join the Team

Participation Overview

Our regular season spans July through October, with two to three team practices per week. Races are held in September and October and hosted by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Cycling League (PICL). PICL hosts roughly six race events throughout different regions of Pennsylvania. A race event is a two day weekend affair with pre-ride and special events occurring on Saturday and races on Sunday. The race scene and atmosphere is vibrant and fun!

Practice

Commonly held at York County Parks, practices range from 90-120 minutes Tuesday and Thursday, with an optional bonus Sunday ride. Providing a mix of skills and endurance activities, practice is intended to be fun preparation for PICL race events. Parents who have attained the required NICA certifications and background checks are encouraged to ride with the team.

Not Your Ordinary Practice

Required Equipment

Student cyclists bring their own mountain bike with 26” to 29” wheels with knobby tires no less than 1.75” wide and at least five gear cogs on the rear wheel. Front or full suspension frame preference is left to the rider. Front and rear brakes are required. Bar ends are not allowed.

Safety always comes first. A bike helmet meeting ANSI or Snell standards is required. Helmets must be worn and strapped at all times when on a bike. Gloves and protective eyewear are strongly recommended, but not required by NICA.

A team uniform is required. Other team gear is available for purchase to complete the kit if desired.
