WHAT IS WORCA?
The Whistler Off Road Cycling Association was founded in 1989 to lobby against the pending closure of bike trails in Garibaldi Provincial Park. As a result of these early efforts the Cheakamus Lake and Elfin Lake trails remained open to cyclists.
WORCA has evolved over the years to become an integral part of Whistler. Today it has a fourteen-member board of directors that represents and serves a community of more than 1,800 members.
By working with government, landowners and developers, WORCA continues to ensure mountain bike trail access while providing a wide range of other services to the mountain bike community:
- WORCA sanctions the weekly Toonie Ride series, Monday Night Rides and Phat/PhaSt Wednesday series, as well as special events like the Westside Wheel Up;
- WORCA fosters the evolution of the sport through its youth programs and clinics, teaching safety, etiquette and technique to cyclists;
- WORCA helps to maintain hundreds of kilometres of trails to the highest environmental standards through member fees and volunteer efforts.
With a growing membership WORCA can increase trail maintenance and rehabilitation projects around Whistler. Join today to support your local trails.
WORCA is an incorporated non-profit Society as defined by the Society Act, WORCA’s constitution and bylaws can be downloaded here.
