The night will also feature some great silent auction items from 5 to 8 p.m., with well over $2,000 in goodies up for grabs! Live entertainment will be provided by Kevin Flesher from the Dukes of Dodge.

The United Riders of Cumberland is a registered non-profit society that promotes and supports the local mountain bike community in the Comox Valley.

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!
