MORCA - Monterey Off Road Cycling Association
MORCA Endorses Measure M




The Fort Ord Access Alliance qualified an initiative for the November 2013 ballot.

The initiative, known as Measure M, will protect 540 acres of the former Fort Ord from development.

MORCA endorses Measure M because the trails in this area are an important recreational asset and well known as a great place for beginner mountain bikers to get into the sport. The trails in this area are fondly called “The Happy Trails” by the local mountain biking community. In addition to being wonderful trails for beginner mountain bikers the trails provide a perfect gateway into the Fort Ord National Monument for the local community. If properly developed as a recreational asset this area could become a model recreational trail system for use by local residents and visitors.

Vote YES on measure M. Vote NO on measure K (a competing developer led measure).

To show our support for Measure M MORCA has donated $500 to the Fort Ord Access Alliance. In addition, MORCA will match donations made through the MORCA web site up to an additional $500.

MORCA Met the match PLUS for a total donation of about $1357 that will go to FOAA.
