Trailforks – Milagrosa

TORCA is helping to put Tucson's amazing riding on the map. Not only do we make La Milagrosa and many other trails shine through tons of volunteer hours working on the trail, we make them shine in the international spotlight as well. Pinkbike has made our hometown gem of gnarliness, their Trail of the Month. TORCA is making big things happen in Tucson and it’s nice to see being noticed on such a large scale. If you haven't joined us for a group ride or trail day, come on out and see what we are all about. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/trailforks-trail-of-the-month-la-milagrosa-2015.html

CDO Trailwork

CDO Trail Work:

Wow what a hugely productive work weekend for TORCA on the CDO trail. We removed over 20 downed trees and cleared 3+ miles of trail. It was remote and not easy to get to, but 6 brave souls spent two days helping CDO find its former glory. Here are a few before and after pictures of just a small portion of the work that was done. Come out and join us in April for more trail magic.

The Amazing Poker Ride! – 2004

What an amazing day of riding. We want to thank everyone who came out and supported TORCA for the day and made the event a huge success. We hope you had as much fun riding as we had putting it on for you. There were amazing bikes out there and the banter over which one was the best was awesome! We want to thank all of the manufacturers for coming out including Specialized, Devinci, Pivot, Niner, and Ibis. All of them brought out the most amazing trail weapons one could hope to throw a leg over. Thanks Guys! We'd also like to thank Borderlands Brewing for providing the bevees and Risky Business for the amazing food! Thanks Johnnie-O! A huge debt of gratitude is owed to the Bike shops for their support of our event. Arizona Cyclist and Fairwheel Bikes. We'd also like to thanks Dane of Guru suspension for coming out as well as Ordinary bikes for their contributions. Last but not least, thanks to all the volunteers that helped out and made the event a success. Next year will be even bigger and better!! Cheers everyone!!
