The Pull: Austin McInerny (ex) of NICA

My guest this week is the former executive director of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, the organization that oversees, administers and fosters mountain bike racing for high school kids. McInerny has been involved with the organization almost since its inception and became the executive director in 2012.

At the time, McInerny told the board he planned to do the job for three to five years, but ended up staying on for seven years. The organization has grown dramatically, and will soon have leagues in 30 different states.

 

He’s about to take an extended vacation, but before leaving he has lent some effort to a new advocacy organization in mountain biking, and we will talk about them and their purpose as well as his efforts on their behalf.
