Independent Riders

Individuals can compete in the Maryland League,

but it's even more fun to train and race with a team.

Find a Team near you, or Start a Team in your area (it only takes one adult and one student-athlete).

No team? No problem!

Students can compete as an independent rider in the League Series. While they will not be eligible for the Team Overall title, they are eligible for the Individual Race and Overall titles. Independent riders should put "Independent" rather than a team name on the application. All other rules apply.

Home-schooled and online students who are enrolled in a Maryland online charter school or are home-schooled and who are domiciled within the attendance zone of a member school or composite team, may compete on the member school or composite team.  If neither of these options are available to the student-athlete then the online or home school student may compete as an independent rider. Although this policy varies from the NICA Rulebook, it aligns with the Maryland Interscholastic Cycling League's student eligibility rules.  For more information about the League rules governing teams, please refer to the League  Rulebook (PDF) (Section 7: “Team Rules”; pp. 21-25).
