Triangle Off-Road Cyclists

Because having more trails means more ways to get active outside.

Triangle Off-Road Cyclists (TORC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit volunteer run organization that supports responsible mountain biking in the Triangle area of North Carolina. We offer group rides, clinics, races, and other events for riders of every skill level. And we partner with land managers and other stakeholders to establish and maintain trails that everyone can enjoy.
