Singletrack Times


Don’t miss out on fun in the dirt this weekend!

We have two events this weekend where student athletes can earn service hours and contribute to our community through trail work!


  1. Saturday 8-12 in Pea Ridge. The NICA team in Pea Ridge is leading the charge to build a trail in their community. Come join their work! All are welcome! In case of rain, check the OORC Facebook page for up-to-date information.
  2. Sunday 12-2 in Bentonville. This is an introduction workshop to the Teen Trail Corps program and instruction on doing trail maintenance.

We hope to see you there!

Kyla, Terry, and the Arkansas Team



The Arkansas NICA League is committed to building strong bodies, minds, and character in student-athletes by leading through service for individuals and teams.

It’s so important to us that our race season awards include bonus points for individuals for service hours and half of our team award is based on the service hours for the whole team. For specifics, you can visit the Arkansas Appendix in the NICA Handbook. Students have two choices for how to earn the bonus points:

  1. Complete 10 bike-related service hours. This can be done through your team or through other organizations, such as OORC, CATA, BikeNWA, FAST, etc.
  2. Complete NICA’s Service Leadership Development Program, Teen Trail Corps. Student athletes will work toward earning 4 badges to complete their Teen Trail Corps Captain Badge.

Arkansas NICA has a goal of completing over 6,000 service hours in 2021.

Now is the perfect time to start working on service hours!
