Welcome Terry Palmeri, IMBA's New Associate Regional Director

The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and the Southern Off-Road Mountain Bicycle Association (SORBA), IMBA’s Southeast Region, have jointly hired a full-time professional advocate in the role of IMBA's Associate Regional Director.  Terry Palmeri will work closely with Tom Sauret, IMBA Regional Director and SORBA Executive Director, helping serve the 38 SORBA chapters in his territory of Alabama, Florida, Georgia,  Mississippi , North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee.

Terry is the President of the Ellijay Mountain Bike Association, one of the oldest SORBA Chapters, and the Office Manager for the Cartecay River Bicycle Shop.  Her mountain biking career started in 2004 when she met her future husband, Mike Palmeri.  After 12 years of being a roadie, she was introduced to mountain biking on a trip to Wales, England.  Touring the premier mountain biking trail systems in Wales inspired her to help her adopted community of Ellijay to become a mountain biking destination. Terry has successfully worked with the US Forest Service on mountain bike projects in the Chattahoochee-Oconee, the army Corps of Engineers on the Carters Lake trail system, and with Georgia State Parks.  Paul Farrow, SORBA President says, with her years of experience in both bicycle advocacy and bicycle retail worlds, Terry will contribute enormously in IMBA-SORBA’s efforts to accomplish its mission.   

Subaru’s Tour De SORBA Keeps Rolling Through the Southeast!

SORBA staff have kept the Outbacks on the road in March and spent the last two weeks showing off to bicycle enthusiasts and others at the Southeastern Bike EXPO in Conyers, Georgia and to the IMBA-SORBA Southeastern Mountain Bike Summit in Anniston, AL.

The Outbacks greeted Expo attendees at the entrance gate on March 15th and those who stopped by the IMBA-SORBA tent were given a chance to win a TREK Gary Fisher Excalibur provided by Atlanta Bicycling and FreeFlite Bicycles!  Attendees spent thee day at the Olympic horse Park racing, riding new bikes, socializing, and hanging out with IMBA-SORBA members.  The weather was great on Saturday and everyone seemed to have a great time testing all the cool new bike gear for 2014. One of those lucky SORBA members who stopped by to renew (or join) or just to chat about their latest amazing mountain bike ride, will be in a drawing for the bike this June.
