Rides & Events

Riding the Firecracker Epic

GORC breaks its events calendar down into two categories: Rides of our own creation or other off-road gatherings such as the St. Charles Moonlight Ride series. Events include our trail building days and our annual events such as the Firecracker Epic Ride and Volunteer Appreciation Party. We may also include other regional festivals and races not hosted by GORC.

Many of these rides and events are weather-permitting so be sure to check on the respective page to see the latest updates.

Rides  Events

We host several trail building events in the spring and fall seasons. Our major social events also appear here alongside other events and regional races that we indirectly support or GORC riders usually participate.
