Join SORBA and support mountain biking in the Southeast. Our members are more than just people who ride mountain bikes. We’re passionate, concerned individuals who love the peace, beauty, ruggedness, and challenge of the trail. We are making the world better place for mountain biking.
Our members know that many of the solutions to the problems our communities face today can be solved by getting more people out enjoying our natural world from the seat of a bike. And as stewards of trails and bike-friendly communities, SORBA members fund the necessary work that allows us all to enjoy great riding.
We’re here to strengthen mountain bike advocacy.
The Power of Membership
SORBA uses the word association in its name for a reason. We’re a formal group of like-minded people who want to ride their mountain bikes and have a great time doing it. Individuals are the heart of our organization, but one person can’t do it alone. We’ve come together, as an association, to be stronger, to have our voice heard. And we have been heard. Just look around the region at the great trails and strong chapters we have, and you know it’s working.
That’s the real power of membership. Your membership makes all trails possible.
Members also enjoy special deals, programs and discounts. Beyond individual member incentives, SORBA offers a retailer membership & a corporate membership level. Retailer and corporate members & supporters are featured on our Sponsors Page.
