The Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) is the largest nonprofit mountain biking organization in the Southeast. Our members work with land managers in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee to create trails and trail systems for mountain bikers and other users to enjoy. Through advocacy, education, and recreational opportunities, SORBA carries out its mission to promote land access, trail preservation, and new trail development in order to enhance mountain bike touring, racing, fun, and fellowship for all mountain bicyclists in the southeastern United States.

We have partnered with the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and now represent over 4,000 members who help steward miles and miles of great trails in a seven-state area. The best riding in the Southeast is found on trails maintained by our volunteers. Our members love singletrack, rocks, roots, and logs, and we employ IMBA's trailbuilding practices to ensure that our trails are sustainable and challenging.

IMBA-SORBA relies on our wonderful members to carry out our mission. Our volunteers donate thousands of hours each year to advocate for trail access, build trails, and maintain trails. Join IMBA-SORBA today!

White County government and SORBA have entered a Memorandum of Understanding toward developing a recreational trail system. This Agreement is the first step of many, many steps toward realizing the creation of a Multi-Purpose Trail System on the 1,000 acre property DNR has leased to White County.  SORBA, the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association, is ready to join forces as the County develops this property to reflect the quality of life and heritage in White County.

USFS Volunteers on Hiatus During Shutdown


Dear Trail Volunteers,

Unfortunately, all of the great work done by our volunteers must cease today as part of the government shutdown.  The VIF volunteer agreements that allow you to work on the National Forest are not in effect during the shutdown.  I know many of you are very committed and want to keep volunteering.  Please continue to keep planning and be ready to get back to work when the shutdown is over. 

Thanks for all you do and your patience.  

Please share this with other trail volunteers.
