Happy New Year everyone! We hope everyone had a nice holidayfilled with lots of riding! We had a great time on our monthly ride and want tothank everyone who came out and braved the cold on La Milagrosa.

As they say, "No rest for the weary"... We'rehappy to report that TORCA is now the new steward of a couple of sections ofthe AZT (from Prison camp all the way to the Milagrosa Junction). We want tothank the Arizona Trail Association for the opportunity and we already have atrail day planned for January 16th!

You're going to see alot more chatter from us with respectto our efforts and initiatives and we're hoping people will get involved as wehave no shortage of work. Just a few of the many things we've been involvedwith in 2015 and into the future include:>[/SIZE]

In addition to all of the above, we also put on a monthlyride and work day(s). We invite the mtb community to be a part of all the greatthings that are happening and hope you'll join us in our efforts. There aremany ways to help.

We also invite all members to attend one of our board meetings(invitesgo out via email to all members) so you can see what we're up to and where yourmember dues are being used.
