IMBA-SORBA is excited to announce a new partnership with BikeToursDirect to offer our members discounts on bicycle tours worldwide and access to IMBA-SORBA-member-exclusive departures of world-class mountain biking trips across the globe. Information just for SORBA members is available at biketoursdirect.com/sorba.
BikeToursDirect represents local bike tour companies and has nearly 500 trips in 70 countries. Their roster includes more than 60 MTB tours in 30 countries. The voucher code “SORBA13” will get you $25 off/person on any tour on biketoursdirect.com.
Exclusive tour departures for SORBA members
Private departures will be made available on select tours exclusively for IMBA-SORBA members starting next year. What would you think about riding overseas with fellow members from all over the Southeast? Details on a spring trip to Mexico and a summer trip to Scotland will be available soon.
Upcoming events with special guest
To highlight the upcoming exclusive trips for IMBA-SORBA, BikeToursDirect is hosting Euan Wilson this fall. Wilson is the owner of H&I Adventures, operator of premier mountain biking tours in Scotland, Spain, Mexico, Nepal, Ecuador, and Canada. It will be his first trip to the U.S., though, and he will be taking the opportunity to visit several IMBA-SORBA chapters for group rides and info sessions on upcoming overseas trips. These events will be a great chance to showcase the great trails of the Southeast to a world-class rider while learning about mountain bike culture and riding opportunities around the world. Events will be scheduled for late September and early October, with dates and locations to be announced soon!
Trips for your chapter
Chapters may also organize their own group trips overseas through BikeToursDirect’s club travel program. Their staff helps chapters select the right tour, customize it as desired. They then help promote the trip to your members and handle all questions, bookings, and payments. Benefits are available for trip organizers or for the chapter as well.
