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!

Paulding SORBA Update

We, Paulding SORBA, are at it again and have an exciting year ahead of us.  We've broken ground at Mt.Tabor Park by initiating another Gateway Trails project. This trail network will target our community here in Paulding County and hopefully provide many of you an opportunity to improve the community
you inhabit.

We're are starting several initiatives which encompass many facets of giving back.  "Make Your Mark " which describes a
volunteer drive we are hoping to get rolling to aide in the construction of nearly 7 miles of trails to be built at Mt. Tabor. We are hoping that many of
you will opt to either ride or hike these trails to increase your fitness, nature hikes, etc. These trails are going to be interpretive for all users alike. We hope to have several fund raisers throughout the summer to aide us in purchasing signage that will describe these trails.

Paulding SORBA Taps into Community Volunteers

Last summer, in a joint effort with West Ridge Church, over 100 volunteers participated in a two-day event to complete a 1-mile beginner trail at Sara Babb Park in Dallas, Georgia. On March 21st, 2009 Paulding SORBA will join with two local Starbuck Coffee Shops in a Make Your Mark Community Volunteer project. Starbucks will recruit staff and customers to work on Paulding SORBA's Gateway Trails project at Mount Tabor Park in Paulding County, Georgia. The goal is to accumulate 100 hours of volunteer time in this one-day event. With the 100 hours of volunteer time Paulding SORBA will be able to apply for up to a $1000 grant from Starbucks.
