The Cariboo Chilcotin has much to offer the off road motorcycle riding enthusiast whether it be trail, cross country, trials or dual-sport riding and the members of the Williams Lake Off Road Motorcycle Association (WLORMA) are proud to promote and support this popular recreational activity.

WLORMA is a non-profit society dedicated to promoting safe and responsible off road riding in the Cariboo-Chilcotin. As a member of the British Columbia Off Road Motorcycle Association , the club is actively involved in working with the provincial government on land use issues and trail mapping and registration. The club encourages working with local ranchers and other outdoor user groups to bring about mutual respect and understanding to avoid conflicts as well as looking at new ways to minimize negative impact to the environment, wildlife and livestock. Awareness and education are key factors in making this happen.
