Rides & Events

Riding the Firecracker Epic

GORC breaks its calendar down into two categories: Rides of our own creation and others we promote but do not host. Events include our trail building days and annual events such as our Volunteer Appreciation Party. We may also include other regional festivals and events not hosted by the club. Many of these rides and events are weather-permitting so be sure to check on the respective page to see the latest updates.

We host several trail building events in the spring and fall seasons. Our major social events appear here alongside other events we may promote but are not hosted by the club.
