Since 1997 FORC has built over 30 miles of singletrack trail within the area. Your membership dollars go towards continued maintenance, improvement, and advocacy at current and future trail systems as well as MTB related educational programs. FORC, not the local governments, provides a vast majority of the equipment and labor to maintain the singletrack trail at local parks.

    • Participation in special FORC member only events
    • Discounts at many local bike shops
    • Strengthen the voice of local mountain bikers to advocate for more trail access, development, and riding experiences.
    • Give back to the community by volunteering at trail work days and community outreach events.
