our MISSION

It is the mission of CORCA to partner with the Sunshine Coast Council to develop and maintain the Sugarbag Rd trails network to a high sustainable standard and to grow CORCA into a vibrant mountain bike community that encourages and supports all levels of riding abilities by facilitating a wide variety of mountain biking activities.

our VISION

It is our vision to see Sugarbag mountain bike park further developed to include new areas like a car park, pump track, skills park, dedicated green trail, downhill trail and more. We see CORCA becoming a large mountain bike community that meets the needs of mountain bike riders of all ages and ability.

We believe mountain biking is for everyone. Whether you're a young family who loves adventure, a retiree looking for a new hobby, or are new to the Sunshine Coast and looking to get involved with a great community - CORCA welcomes you!

our PURPOSE

Our simple purpose is developing, preserving and maintaining mountain bike trails - primarily, but not exclusively the Sugarbag Mountain Bike Trails network -  and to build a vibrant mountain bike community.

Below are CORCA's written objectives as stated in our Incorporated Association application.

To promote and advocate for mountain biking within the local community, for the benefit for health, wellbeing, enjoyment and community building

To facilitate group activities through mountain biking, trail care and social events

To promote environmental preservation and stewardship through the adoption of responsible principles for mountain biking, trail development and trail care

To seek financial support through grants, sponsorship and membership to enable sport development including maintenance of local mountain bike trails

To represent the mountain bike community in dealing with government, community, landholders, peak bodies and individuals

To provide the opportunity for the development of mountain bike skills

To foster and develop junior mountain bikers and provide racing opportunities.

our HISTORY

Our President started to develop a network of mountain bike trails at the Sugarbag Rd reserve at the end of 2012. Mountain bikers started finding these trails and also offered to help develop more.​

 

A few of us had some meetings with Council and presented with a 615 strong petition to preserve this area for mountain biking and to seek custodianship of the reserve from the State.

 

Why did we start CORCA?

 

With the need to preserve our local trails network at Sugarbag Rd it was necessary to become an Incorporated Association to be able to deal with Governments, both local and State and other stakeholders in a professional manner. In doing so, we formed a management committee and began to build a community of mountain bikers that were also interested in preserving and developing our local trails network, getting together and enjoying riding and building a community of mountain bikers.
