SORBA partners

Partnership is how initiatives are successful, and we couldn’t do our work without the support of other like minded organizations. Below is a list of organizations that SORBA partners with to achieve our mission. If your organization would like to partner with us, please reach out.

International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA)

The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) is an international advocacy organization supporting natural surface trails. SORBA partners with IMBA on a number of national and regional issues to better trail access for everyone. We believe that mountain biking should have a unified voice and IMBA provides that opportunity.

Outdoor Alliance

Outdoor Alliance mobilizes the power of all outdoor enthusiasts to protect public lands and waters. Public land and conservation policy is complex and Outdoor Alliance knows how to effect meaningful change. We do the hard work, ensuring that we’re not just talking but making a measurable impact on all public lands and waters. That means building relationships with decision makers, enthusiasts, and activists to preserve trails, create new legislation, share maps, and empower others to protect the places in their backyards and beyond.

USDA National Forest Service

SORBA and Region 8 of the National Forest Service have a master cost share agreement and partners with the Forest Service on the region, forest, and district level. As the largest land manager in our region, our partnership with the National Forest is an important relationship to support recreational opportunities on the forest. We help to influence regional policies that support trails on the forest and district level.

Adaptive Mountain Bike Trails Project

Led by adaptive mountain bikers, aMTB Trails collaborate with other riders and trail system leaders to ensure that accurate and reliable trail information is available to all. This information empowers adaptive riders to choose the best riding experience.

Pedal Up Foundation

The aim of the Pedal Up Mountain Biking Program is to see Carlo Schejola’s passion for cycling remembered and celebrated. Program funds are used to help bring daily access to cycling, by partnering with youth serving nonprofits to establish local mountain bike programs and facilities, for children and teens across the country.
