Ride trails. win prizes.
Did you know we have more than 100 singletrack mountain bike trails, right here in the Tri-Cities? That’s a lot of trails at your disposal, in your own backyard.
And we want to celebrate the diversity of our trail system with the 2018 TORCA Trail Challenge where each unique trail you ride, gets you one entry into the draw. The more you ride the more chances you have to win. And we have a number of excellent prizes up for grabs.
And it’s easy to enter and participate! All you need to do is download the Trailforks app, register for the challenge, and track each ride. Trails in the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Belcarra and Anmore), that are listed on Trailforks, count towards the challenge.
The challenge runs from September 14th to the 30th. That’s plenty of time to get outside, ride trails and earn entries for some sweet prizes.
