Collingwood Offroad Cycling (CORC) is a social mountain bike club that offers private trails for its members and weekly marked rides at several venues for ~16 weeks starting in late May. A social Apres event is offered every other Thursday after the marked ride.
We offer 16 weekly Marked Routes with every other week offering an 'Apres' Social. Our rides are generally on Thursdays in June, July and August with the first and last rides happening on Saturdays in hopes that more members can attend and to allow for bigger rides!
New for 2023 - The first Social and marked route will be on a weekend- Saturday May 27th 2023
These marked routes may be on public trails (e.g. 3-stage or Kolopore) or on Private properties that CORC members get exclusive access to for that Thursday Night only!
Our Social nights are built on the model of Squamish / SORCA, which started as 'Loonie' and 'toonie' rides 20 years ago!
This fee helps cover the expenses associated with hosting an event including insurance, gas, food, staff etc. Sponsors for each night help contribute to this and any excess is meant to support trail building.
Social rides are only open to current CORC members and cost $5 for adults and are free for youth members. **The marked route is open to all members and is included in your membership**
Collingwood has historically been fairly technical and physically demanding. We are working to add more variable terrain for all abilities in 2023/2024, building upon the added trails and improvements in 2022.
This is a focus for 2023 for Highlands and the other properties we have access to. We will be utilising Trail Forks APP (get it here) more actively this year and greatly increasing our marking, arrows and signage.
