Burke is getting a lot of love these days. Our friends from Norco Bicycles are sponsoring this trail day. We will be working on Frank’s again to finish up some of the sections we couldn’t complete last time.

When: Saturday, Oct. 14 at 9 AM
Where: Meet at the hairpin on Harper Road

Coffee, snacks, lunch and tools will be provided. Please bring water and a pair of comfortable work gloves if you have them.

If you can’t make it to the trail day but still want to help out, consider pitching in with a few bucks and earn some trail karma while you’re at it. Even $5 goes a long way.

Thanks to all the racers who came out to the TORCA 500! What an incredible turnout, our biggest one yet. We had 59 racers registered!!! The Port Moody riding community is strong, especially for the 30 youth and kids that participated. Great job to everyone who raced! Keep an eye out for the September TORCA 500!

We’d like to thank Caps Westwood Cycles for all their help and support and a shout-out to BMC for having all those bikes to demo.

A special thank you to the City of Port Moody for permission to hold the race and to Heritage Woods Secondary for letting us use their parking lot!
