TORCA (Tucson Off-road Cyclists & Activists Inc.) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, 100% volunteer organization in Southern Arizona whose mission is “To engage and empower the mountain bike community to preserve the outdoor experience through advocacy, stewardship, and education with a focus on the maintenance of our valuable trails.” TORCA’s Board of Directors and volunteers work extremely hard to demonstrate to land managers that mountain bikers are committed to preserving the integrity of the trails, as well as fostering better user group relations. TORCA accomplishes this by holding monthly trail work days, and logs thousands of volunteer trail work hours each year.
