Whistler Off Road Cycling Association (WORCA) was founded in 1989 to lobby against the closure of bike trails in Garibaldi Park. As a result of those efforts the Cheakamus Lake and Elfin Lake trails remained open to cyclists.

WORCA has become an integral part of Whistler, and represents a community of more than 1,800 members.

Working with government, landowners and developers, WORCA ensures mountain bike trail access while providing a wide range of other services to the mountain bike community:

WORCA sanctions Toonie Rides, the Phat Wednesday series, and other special events.

WORCA fosters growth of the sport through its youth programs and clinics.

WORCA maintains hundreds of kilometres of trails to the highest standards through member fees, donations, grants, and volunteer efforts.

Help WORCA increase trail maintenance and rehabilitation projects around Whistler by joining today to support your local trails.

Details Announced for The Back Forty 2023
Yeah, the course was a bit ambition in year 1. Sorry about that. 2023's course will be 66.6% identical to 2022.

Details Announced for The Back Forty 2023
Why? The name Back Forty doesn't refer to the distance of the race but the location of it. It comes from the expression "the back forty", which refers to an area near where you live. Kind of like "backyard" but bigger. The term comes from the Homestead Acts (1860s USA) that granted farmers a quarter section; a section was nominally 1 square mile containing 640 acres, a quarter section was 160 acres, and the quarter section was itself subdivided into four quarter-quarter sections of 40 acres each: two front forty and two back forty. Also, 40km of singletrack in Whistler would be too hard for most riders to enjoy, too large of a course for us volunteer organizers to manage and would create such a large gap between the fastest and slowest finishers that the event would take like 14 hours. If you want to put on this type of death-march race, I'd be happy to facilitate. Send me an email at events@worca.com Love, Quinn

Glad you enjoyed the event! 2022 was a big step forward for the Back Forty and we're going to make 2023 an even better version. We've locked in Meadow Park for apres again and our sponsors are just as stoked as our riders. Keep your eyes peeled for a course reveal in early 2023.
