Keeping the team focused on goals

Coach BJ Kisch

Coach BJ Kisch started riding BMX Freestyle as a kid, from there he moved on to mountain bikes while serving in the US Navy. From there he continued riding and racing MTB and road bikes. His first Cross race was the Providence CX festival, and from that point he was hooked on Cyclocross as his primary discipline.
He has been a youth ice hockey coach, primarily working with goaltenders, a snowboard instructor, IJC freestyle judge and both a USAC & NICA cycling coach. As a cycling coach he specializes in skills development. He is also a USAC Official and Race Director, you may have seen him at road and TT events and working at the BubbleCross cyclocross race.
Coach BJ is passionate about youth cycling and sport development, he enjoys passing along his years of experience racing throughout the mid-Atlantic and New England region.

Coach Eric Vollmuth

Coach Eric's love of cycling began as a toddler when his grandpa would take him on rides around Union county on the back of his Schwinn. A few years later, Eric’s dad taught him how to ride a “2 wheeler” and a life-long passion stuck. He rode his bike to school and relative's houses exploring northern and central New Jersey and added mountain biking in his teens and cyclocross as an adult. Eric will try any kid of biking anywhere and has bike packed in the wild west, trained in Italy and raced in NJ . Over the last decade, his focus has shifted from personal enjoyment to "getting more kids on bikes” through NICA. He is a level 3 Coach and board member in the NJ Interscholastic Cycling League.

Coach Danielle Ferland

I bought my first decent bike back in 2012, a sweet hardtail mountain bike and that's where the n+1 all started. In 2014 I got into road biking and joined an all-women's racing team shortly thereafter.  Several miles, bikes, and loads of smiles later, I found NICA and I was accepted into the Trek Women's Advocate program in 2017 then I was asked to help coach the NJCX Project.   It has been quite the whirlwind love affair with bicycles and I absolutely love being able to give back while helping the next generation of racers build their skills and love of the sport.

Coach Charlie Muller

Charlie started cycling in 2013 after running injuries started to compile. Cycling was used first as cross-training for running, but quickly took over as his preferred sport. A few years later he found himself racing time trials, mountain bikes and cyclocross-my favorite discipline. Luckily his son has caught the cycling bug and they spend countless hours working on skills and discovering new trails.

He is  a USAC Level 3 coach and spend many miles leading local group rides on the road and trails. And I enjoy teaching the details to kids and watching their development.
