Annnd we just blew through 2000 members. For the little drinking club with a biking problem founded 27 years ago this is a pretty huge accomplishment. These milestones are always a good time to look back at where we came from. The Squamish Times did it first piece on off-road cycling a few months after we were founded and it contains some real gems.
“Now they’ve got bikes with shock absorbers and the verdict is still out about whether they’re a gimmick or something that will benefit the bike.”
“In addition, SORCA members stress helmet use at all times when navigating local trails”
“After exploring most of the roads and trails around Squamish, Miller and French started to think about forming a mountain biking club dedicated to preserving and enhancing the trails around Squamish. The response to their first meeting was, in their words, overwhelming.” “We both realized that there are a lot of people riding in Squamish, so we wanted to find a way to bring some of those people together,” French said. ‘‘We thought we would get just a few people but at our first meeting we were swamped with 30 people and we were really only expecting 12 at the most “
A huge thanks to everyone in the past, present and future for helping our community grow. Congrats to Amanda Oster, the winner of the draw that we did for the EDC Pump when we passed 1992!
