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!

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.
