In 2009 a group of enthusiastic mountain bikers, road cyclists, bicycling advocates and Wild Women riders decided it was time to join forces in the name of cycling, and build not just trails, but a riding community around them. The Qathet Regional Cycling Association (QRCA) is now the hub for advocating cycling initiatives in and around the city, championing the building and maintaining our amazing trail system, and inspiring more folks to get out riding bikes and enjoying them safely.

Qathet Regional Cycling Association acknowledges that we live and play on treaty and traditional lands of the Tla’amin people.
