Dear Community Member:

When people started Mountain biking in 1990’s no one ever imagined how this industry would grow, as an Olympic sport to after-school kids’ programs, the Bike Instructor Certification Program is growing in the same way. We started out as a small business and with a strong development through (formally) IMBA-ICP, the Bike Instructor Certification Program, (the BICP) has now developed into the global standard for mountain bike instructor certification.

We have an exciting year planned and we are asking for donations to help offset our general expenses. To keep up with the demands of the growing sport requires on-going changes to our curriculum to meet the needs of the industry and how to teach safely and with purpose. Our budget that cannot be met by participant dues alone, and although much of this budget is derived from member dues, we try to keep the dues down in order to allow more members to participate.

Please help support the Bike Instructor Certification Program by making a charitable donation. The Bike Instructor Certification Program is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit public charity. 

Our mission is to advance the global standard for mountain bike instruction, driving an inclusive community that empowers our members through education, certification, service, and experience.

The BICP is proud of its members and supports them in creating a strong community of like-minded individuals that work together to grow the sport of mountain biking in their community. We support our coaches and encourage them to start a mountain bike business in their community, many of our coaches work with their local trail systems and schools to develop after-school programs.

Given that we are a non-profit organization, your donation is tax-deductible and serves as an excellent way to give back to your community. We graciously accept any assistance you can offer, and we thank you in advance for your support.

Donors will be presented with a letter of thanks as well as an acknowledgment certificate for your tax-deductible donation. Also, any donor that gives over $500 in cash or product will receive a sponsor status which we will recognize on our website. A Federal Tax ID number is available upon request. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Nicole Gerow

Director of Administration
