GORC 20th Anniversary Camp Out

Gateway Off-Road Cyclists is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year. GORC is a volunteer-based non-profit dedicated to building, maintaining and promoting most of the trails in St. Louis and St. Charles County. They work closely with various County Parks Departments to keep the trails clean and safe for cyclists, hikers, trail runners, and anyone else looking to enjoy some time under the trees.

To celebrate this epic milestone, Spoked Adventures has teamed up with Terrain Magazine to bring you an epic overnight mountain bike adventure. Spend two days and one night in Greensfelder Park building and riding the trails. This is an awesome way to get your hands dirty (literally) while giving back a little.

This event is open to everyone. No trail building experience is necessary. GORC will have a team of volunteers to lead Saturday's trail maintenance. There will mountain bike riders of all skill levels to guide rides, so whether this is your first time ever on a mountain bike or your first time in a week, the guides will lead the way.
