League Director and Founder
Maria has a Masters in Sociology from UCLA and a Bachelors in Political Science from Haverford College, but perhaps even more impressive is her cycling background. Maria worked at the Cadence Cycling Foundation, a non-profit working with Philadelphia and Wilmington schools to help kids develop important life-skills through the sport of cycling. Maria is a former Trek Women’s Advocate and seeks to inspire women to pursue their goals on and off the bike. In her spare time, Maria races Mountain Bikes and Cyclocross in the mid-Atlantic Region and works alongside her husband at GreshFit, a performance bike fitting and training studio, located in West Chester, PA.
Events and Marketing Director/Founder
Popping wheelies and jumping over friends at age 6, it’s no wonder Scotty ended up with a career centered on cycling. An ice hockey injury in his early 20s led to him turning back to bikes to stay fit, and before you knew it, he caught the mountain biking bug and was volunteering to organize and promote local events. He then spent three years as the co-race director and social media manager for Circus Bear Productions, producing the three highest attended races in the Mid-Atlantic Super Series.
He’s been coaching since 2019 and that rewarding experience led him to bring NICA’s core values to Delaware. When he’s not racing mountain bikes, cyclocross, or annoying his 16-year old daughter, he works part-time for Trek.
