About Michigan Scholastic Cycling Association (MiSCA)
MiSCA was founded in 2010 and is the premier scholastic cycling organization in the state of Michigan that puts on mountain bike races just for students. MiSCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit USA Cycling (USAC) Club hosting a series of Mountain Bike races across Michigan each year for elementary, middle, and high school aged students. MiSCA offers the official Scholastic State Championship for USA Cycling.

Scholastic cycling is modeled after the successful collegiate cycling system. In this system the focus is on the individual as part of a larger team and while very competitive the atmosphere is much more relaxed than the usual Michigan mountain bike races. This more relaxed atmosphere is a result of participants that are relatively new to racing as well as the fact that participants do not compete in the normal mountain bike categories but rather compete for their school in more generic skill-based categories. We offer cycling as a legitimate sport to many students who would not otherwise know it existed as a ‘real sport.’ In other words we bring new people into the sport of cycling. We also give students disenchanted with the other school sports teams a chance to excel.
