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!

Ice Damage Leads to Trail Closures for CSRA Trails

The recent ice storm hit the Augusta, GA and Aiken, SC area hard. If you live out of town and were planning on visiting FATS in the next few weeks, you should reschedule your trip. Not only is FATS wet from the recent ice storm, but the downed trees and branches have made a majority of the loops impassable. This is true for most of the other trails in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) as well.

Most residents in the CSRA, and our local volunteers, have had their power restored, but they will be taking care of damage to their homes and yards first.
