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!

Tsali'bration Debuts October 11-12

Most, if not all, of you have heard of and probably ridden at Tsali.  The original Right and Left loops were built in the early 80’s by a local Backcountry Horseman’s Association in conjunction with the Forest Service.  Then came the Thompson and Mouse Branch loops spearheaded by a dedicated group of off-road bike enthusiasts from NOC.  Over the ensuing years, thousands of people have enjoyed the remote experience that Tsali has to offer.  It’s time to return the love and come help maintain the trails at Tsali.
