WORCA set for 2003 season

In addition to youth clinics, WORCA will continue to provide members with hucking clinics, freeride clinics and women only clinics.

On the trail front, WORCA is looking into a grant to do more work on A River Runs Through It, Whistler’s most popular trail with more than 14,000 rider visits in a three-month period last summer. Grants from community groups have already funded work on Train Wreck and the Emerald trail.

Dan Markle will continue work on his epic Foreplay/Secret Trail this season as the new suspension bridge over Wedge Creek is completed by the municipality. The bridge will make it possible to eventually link the two existing trail sections, tentatively called Foreplay and North Secret Trail, into a single 20-plus kilometre trail.

Regular trail maintenance nights will also be held throughout the season, starting with WORCA’s trail sweep day on May 4.

On the sweep day, volunteers from WORCA walk local trails and clear any logs or debris left lying on the trails after the winter season. More details on this annual event, which usually includes a pancake breakfast, are still to come.

Some dates to keep in mind this season:

First Loonie Race, hosted by Gone Bakery in Alpine – May 1

WORCA Bike Swap – May 3

WORCA Trail Sweep – May 4
