Event Details

Every week for 20 weeks, WORCA hosts Thursday night Toonie Rides with the sponsorship of local businesses and organizations. The rides cost $2 (Toonie) with half of the entry fee going into WORCA's trail maintenance fund, and the other half into a pot for the top riders - usually locals who are training for the nationals or even the World Cup, so they can use every cent they get. The 'Ride' part of the name is more about our mandate, which is to foster the use of bicycles in the community. There are a core group of 'racers' in our series and we do reward 1st, 2nd and 3rd places however the majority of riders are just out to have fun, explore the trails, get a bit of exercise, and socialize with other members.
