Since 2018 Portland Metro Composite has “blazed the trail” for interscholastic cycling in Portland Oregon as our city’s first team to participate in the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (“NICA” and the Oregon Interscholastic Cycling League (

We partner with these organizations to fulfill our purpose and mission to provide middle and high school students–from the Portland Metropolitan area–opportunities to develop their physical, mental and emotional well being as participants in the sport of mountain biking.

We operate with volunteer leadership and coaches (all trained and certified through NICA) and have grown a diverse and inclusive community that supports our riders ability to enjoy sport and being part of an encouraging team while our coaches and senior riders support each individual rider to develop the skill, strength and ability required to ride with the team alongside their self-confidence, self-assuredness and ultimately their freedom to choose and challenge themselves and their muscles only as much as they see fit.

We compete and are rewarded every season in cross country mountain bike races against our fellow NICA/Oregon League teams from cities and towns throughout Oregon and southern Washington.

We do not use social media to promote ourselves and are known and discovered “organically” through our partnerships, our presence in our city and community and in the way we show up to local park and trail systems and at Oregon League Race Series events.

Our operation is only possible through the support of our community and sponsors and, who we are grateful for.
