Members of TORC's Meetup,

I, as well as all of the TORC Executive Committee, chairs, committees and members, would like to invite all the TORC Meetup members to the TORC Triangle Fat Tire Festival.

Check out the link:


A few dedicated officers have donated a tremendous amount of their personal time to organize a festival that will be fun for all Triangle mountain bikers.


We have:

Group rides,

dirt jump demos,

sponsors and exhibits,

bike maintenance,

safety and skills clinics,

a kid's race (volunteers wanted),

lunch with the Chirba Chirba Dumplings food truck!


We will also have TORC socks! Custom socks by SockGuy will be available for a $10/pair. All proceeds go to TORC.


We will also be offering a drawing for all IMBA TORC members to win a 2011 Access Stealth[masked]er Mountain Bike - which was generously donated by TORC sponsor - Performance Bicycle!


Let me explain how important it is for you to consider getting an IMBA membership within the TORC chapter for the Triangle area.

IMBA membership means power to advocate for the protection of existing trails as well as finding more new trail to build.  TORC IMBA maintains relationships with Wake County (Lake Crabtree, Harris Lake, North Wake Landfill trails).  Through this relationship we are able to have night rides, dirt jumps at Lake Crabtree, the beginning of a new skills area at Harris Lake.  Relationships with private property land owners such as Briar Chapel (6 miles of existing trails with 20 miles as the projected total and UNC's Carolina North trails.  Little River Regional Park, RTP trails and future trails.  Forest Ridge is just now going through the planning stage for a new park that will have mountain biking trails.  TORC members have been working with Forest Ridge for a long time to get these new future trails.  The success of TORC Meetup is due to the backbone of the TORC club and the excellent TORC member volunteers.


Please consider getting an IMBA membership and help TORC do the great things that we have done, are doing and will do.


Come to the festival.  Beginner and intermediate groups rides will be available (can be divided up even more).  I will be leading some of the groups so please join us and introduce yourself to me.
