MORC Online Store
Open for Limited Time!
We often hear- “wow, sick design, I love that t-shirt, where can I get one?!” but unfortunately managing merchandise inventories, as well as order processing and fulfillment is simply something MORC does not have the capacity or resources to take on ourselves. Fortunately there are third party vendors to handle that for us! For a limited time only (through Wednesday August 16th) the MORC Swag Shop hosted by Teespring is open and offering a variety of our most popular shirt designs. Get yours by visiting:

TrailsFest and the
‘Ride em All’ Challenge
150 riders took on the challenge this Summer to visit all 13 MORC riding destinations- with just over 30 completionists proud to say #IamMORC
The Challenge ended with the inaugural TrailsFest event at Carver Lake Park. Thanks to our friends at Art Doyle’s Spokes and Pedals, the Bicycle Alliance of MN, and Surly Brewing for making the event extra awesome! Click here to see photos from this year’s event.

*Challenge participants: if you were unable to attend the TrailsFest event and collect your earnings in-person, please complete the survey at the following link:

Surly Gives A Damn at
Theodore Wirth
Surly Gives A Damn, the public-spirited side of Surly Brewing, joined us at Theodore Wirth park last week, bringing an army of volunteers in a huge coordinated effort to perform a couple sustainable trail reroutes, LOTS of rock armoring, and installing 100′ of split-rail fencing. Check out the photo album from the event, and please, ride carefully as our trail options have changed!
