Special thanks to the Flagler Area Biking SORBA for hosting this meeting!
“We are very excited here in Central Florida to be hosting the SORBA Fall Fat Tire Weekend & SORBA Board Meeting. Guess what else we’re excited about? Seeing all of you! We (Flagler Area Biking SORBA) would like to roll out the red carpet and invite SORBA Chapters and all fellow mountain bikers to attend our event this November 9th and 10th in DeLand, Florida. We will be featuring most of our trail systems for your riding pleasure: Spruce Creek, Chuck Lennon Park, Mala Compra and Moses Creek Mountain Bike Trails. There will be something for everyone from beginner to double diamond trails and group rides to suit all rider skill levels!
What would a biking event be without great socials with beer and food? Our local brewery, Persimmon Hollow, is generously helping us out in the beer department. There will of course be bike demos, even E-Bike demos. Remember, you’ll also be only 30 minutes from the beach and less than an hour from Orlando! Bring the family – there’s plenty to do around here. We also have two State Parks in the vicinity (DeLeon Springs and Blue Springs) that feature natural springs for swimming and viewing wildlife.”
