Its time once again to oil up your chain, tighten your seatpost, and stock your medicine cabinet with disinfectant, bandages and anti-inflammatories.
The Whistler Off Road Cycling Associations Loonie Race season gets underway this Thursday, May 6 with an event co-sponsored by WORCA and the Riverside Junction Café.
Registration for this event begins at 5:30 p.m., with a 6:30 p.m. start. The course will include sections of Lost Lakes trail system and higher trails.
To participate youll need to be a member of WORCA. Individual memberships are $40, youth memberships are $35 and family memberships are $90, and include Cycling B.C. membership. Rising insurance costs are the reason for the price increase, costing $23.50 a member.
Any proceeds from membership dues go to trail maintenance projects, youth programs, trail advocacy work, and member services.
WORCA also received a $12,400 municipal grant-in-aid this year for trail maintenance and a proposed project to renew and upgrade epic trail systems like Babylon by Bike.
