Annual Fund

Dear IMBA-SORBA Supporter,

ImageYou know you want to ride--so do we. IMBA and SORBA, the organizations that help create, preserve and enhance mountain biking trails, are grateful for your support. Your contribution to the 2008 Annual Fund will allow us to continue to work together to achieve our goals this year and in the year ahead.

Some examples of how Annual Fund donations were used in your backyard include:

  • Ten fully supported Trips for Kids Rides in the SORBA Service area
  • Tools for the Fat of the Land Chapter in Tallahassee, Florida; Appalachian Mountain Bike Association SORBA in Knoxville, Tennessee; and Paulding SORBA in Paulding County, Georgia
  • The National Trails Day weekend at Bent Creek in Asheville, North Carolina
  • Tool trailer support for the Triangle Off-Road Cyclists chapter in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina
  • 34 additional trail projects implemented by SORBA clubs in 2007

ImageSORBA has partnered with IMBA in 2008, in part to stretch your dollars even further. But even more importantly, IMBA and SORBA are able to create more opportunities in nearly every chapter with either additional miles on existing trails or signed partnership agreements for new trail systems. Our long-term plans include:
  • Creation of two regional Ride Centers in the SORBA service area
  • 10 IMBA Trail Care Crew visits to SORBA Chapters
  • 28 trail projects scheduled or in planning for 2009
  • More tools and resources for SORBA chapters

Giving to our Annual Fund is like lubing your chain--it's not going to give you a better story than "the time I almost ran into a bear," but it goes a long way to make SORBA and IMBA more effective at creating new trails or protecting and improving the trails you ride everyday. If everyone gives a little, we can all ride more.

Thank you for your support,

Tom Sauret, Executive Director, SORBA

Rich Cook, Development Director, IMBA
