We are the Long Island Hurricanes

 

The  Long Island Hurricanes youth mountain bike program,  in its third year, is dedicated  to provide competitive mountain biking programs for students in Nassau County. Through our parent organization NY Interscholastic  League and affiliated with NICA (National Interscholastic Cycling Association); along with the cooperation of local race organizers, our partners, and our sponsors, we are able to provide a high quality mountain bike racing experience. Regardless of ability level, the New York League is committed to providing a positive experience for all student-athletes.

 

The Long Island Hurricanes and the NY High School Cycling League are committed to teaching safe riding practices and share our love of the sport, as we encourage our children to develop lifelong fitness habits, in a fun and exhilarating manner. We believe forming scholastic teams is the best way for students to learn how to ride safely.  While some may go on to National level competition, all will have fun, develop fitness and learn skills and life lessons that will stay with them forever.  Our goal is have fun, make friends, build esteem and educate.
