UROC is currently working with the Village of Cumberland on the re-establishment of the jump park as approved in the parks master plan. Most recently UROC has entered into a partnership with the Village of Cumberland to pursue land access agreements for non- motorized recreation on private forest land surrounding the Village. Join UROC at Prime and show your support as work towards more and better mountain biking for all!
