It's a massively inclusive program. It's the right thing to do."

Having the power of such a large media brand behind us will help us continue to share our work in the mountain bike community, and welcome new participants and supporters to NICA. Whenever we survey our membership regarding media consumption, Pinkbike ranks at or near the top of sites visited, and we look forward to working with Pinkbike to build on this engagement."
