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.

Ice Damage Leads to Trail Closures for CSRA Trails

The recent ice storm hit the Augusta, GA and Aiken, SC area hard. If you live out of town and were planning on visiting FATS in the next few weeks, you should reschedule your trip. Not only is FATS wet from the recent ice storm, but the downed trees and branches have made a majority of the loops impassable. This is true for most of the other trails in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) as well.

Most residents in the CSRA, and our local volunteers, have had their power restored, but they will be taking care of damage to their homes and yards first.
