The Pedal Factory is proud to support our local youth mountain bike team, The Rowan Rockhounds. As an organization, we help with fundraising efforts and grant applications. Our board and staff are actively involved in coaching and growing the team. The Rockhounds are part of the NC Interscholastic Cycling League (NCICL), which fulls under the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). The mission of NICA is to get more kids on bikes and encourage strong bodies, minds and characters through cycling. As avid mountain bikers and trail care advocates, The Pedal Factory fully supports and believes in the mission of NICA, as it aligns with our mission to make bikes accessible to all.
The Rowan Rockhounds are now in their 4th season. We accept riders from all over the county to join the team - no tryouts necessary. Any student in grades 6-12 may join the team. The season begins Dec 1 and includes several race weekend events in the spring. Practices take place weekly at Salisbury Community Park and nearby locations, as well as indoor at The Pedal Factory and other partner facilities. Join us and see the positive impact of getting kids outdoors on bikes! Mtn biking provides an activity for a ifetime. Parent involvement is highly encouraged - biking is a true family activity.
