Do you have a bag full of saddles, box full of pedals, a bin full of cranks, or a few old bikes that you no longer need? Bring them to TORCFest to donate to The ReCYCLEry of Carrboro. The ReCYCLEry is a non-profit that teaches bicycle repair and maintenance and allows community members to earn their bikes! You’ll clear out valuable space and contribute to a great cause.

Meet our Dirt Heros - the TORC volunteers who build and maintain 12+ trails around the Triangle - and get your hands on the Trailbuilding Tools. Learn how YOU can help keep our local trails in tip top shape.

Group rides will be available starting between 10:00 and 1:00pm for beginners and those unfamiliar with the trails. Or meet up with others to ride the fun single track, challenging Bennett Mountain, or skills park and head out on your own.

Raffle starts shortly after 3:00pm. Members get 4 entries, volunteer for a TORCfest shift to get 2 entries. Must be present to win.
