About the MN High School Cycling League

The Minnesota High School Cycling League, founded in 2012, is a state-wide independent activity provider for student-athletes in 7th to 12th grade. Our mission is to build strong bodies, strong minds and strong character through cycling, regardless of ability level.

Simply put, we get kids on bikes. Student-athletes from 7th through 12th grade come from all corners of the state to participate in races and programs. The majority of these kids have never ridden a mountain bike, let alone raced prior to participating in the league.  Our association has grown from just over a hundred riders to over 1,500 riders!
