Join the Mountain Bike Revolution!

Strengthening body, mind, character and communities through interscholastic cycling

The Downingtown Mountain Bike Team is open to students in grades 6 through 12 who reside in the Downingtown Area School District or in neighboring districts without a team. Private, charter, cyber, and home school students residing in the same area are also eligible. Beginners are welcome!

The objective of the team is to have fun while improving mountain biking skills in a safe environment. Competition is a goal but is not a requirement; league competition takes place in-season across the state against similarly skilled and experienced teams.

Downingtown MTB started in 2016 when the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Cycling League (PICL) was formed. The team has grown steadily every year since and now has around 70 student athletes and over 30 coaches!

The 2024 Season is here!

The long winter is finally behind us, and that means that the 2024 PICL season is upon us! We’re very excited to get the wheels turning again. Registration will open on April 1st and will remain open until July 10th, unless we hit our registration cap before then. Don’t take your chances — sign up early and reserve your spot! Check back here for registration links.

Hope to see you on the trails soon!

End of 2023 Season Recap

The 2023 PICL season has finally come to a close, but not before racking up some great memories along the way. We had over 60 student-athletes! The practice season featured great rides all summer. The kids steadily built their endurance and honed their bike handling skills. Racing kicked off at Boyce in late August with the Rally Format and some great weather! What a great course to go downhill! We had great racing weather for Gettysburg and Johnstown, but no season would be complete without a muddy mess of a race! Blue Mountain fit the bill this year as it poured all day Saturday on the High School racers! And the course was no picnic for the middle school racers the next day. Head to toe mud on the racers, but smiles all around! Rain hit the area again the following week so the Fairhill race was postponed till after Raystown Radness, where everyone went and just rode some great trails, camped out and had a great time! Fair Hill trails were in great shape to host the final race of the PICL Season, and the team did great! While we measure success more in smiles than medals, it sure was nice to see all the hard work pay off! By the time we celebrated our season with bowling and pizza in November, we said goodbye to 5 graduating seniors. Can’t wait to do it again!
