As part of our partnership with NICA, we have designed a very special, limited-edition Soleil Short Sleeve Top that celebrates and benefits Girls Riding Together (GRiT) programming. Girls Riding Together is NICA’s concentrated effort to get more girls involved in cycling and to empower female student-athletes to make their mark on the world, on or off the bike.
Currently, girls represent just 20% of NICA’s overall national student-athlete participation. By creating the Polka Rocks print, we hope to help NICA increase these numbers significantly and aid in its mission to make the sport of mountain biking more accessible to girls of all backgrounds and riding abilities through the funding of GRiT programming.
Proceeds from the sale of the Polka Rocks printed Soleil Short Sleeve Top directly benefit the training and leadership development of GRiT coordinators and coaches and the retention and recruitment of female student-athletes at league and nationwide levels. By purchasing this top, you’re supporting fair treatment, equal access, and the elimination of barriers to help youths discover the transformative power of mountain biking.
NICA exists because of the generous support and collective power of thousands of individual actions from sponsors, donors, and volunteers. If the interscholastic cycling movement moves you, please consider making a financial contribution to NICA in the spirit of Giving Tuesday or donate your time as a volunteer to help get one more kid on a bike.
