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.
SORBA has partnered with the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and now represents 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.
To carry out its mission, SORBA relies on their local chapters. The Southeast Georgia (SEGA) SORBA chapter was started in 2011 by local mountain bikers in the Savannah area. SEGA-SORBA's mission is to promote mountain biking in the greater Savannah area through family friendly events, and making sure the two most popular trails in Savannah, Tom Triplett Park and Skidaway Island, will stay open and well maintained for all mountain bikers to enjoy. Now and in the future.
To succeed in this effort, we need all local mountain bikers to get involved. The first step is to become a member of IMBA-SORBA. Sign up using the red button on right side of the menu bar. Make sure to select Southeast Georgia (SEGA) as your local chapter. Of your money 40% will come back to SEGA-SORBA to be invested in the trails you ride.
The second step is, GET INVOLVED! You love mountain biking, as do we, so please come out to one of our monthly meetings and meet your follow riders. We would love to meet you. In these meetings you can make your voice heard if you have great ideas to improve the quality of mountain biking in the Savannah area.
If meetings are not for you, but you would still like to contribute, come join us on one of our trail work days. It takes team effort to keep our trails in good shape, so they stay safe and fun for all. And be honest, who doesn't like to play in the dirt? Nothing feels better that riding trails you know you helped build.
Don't wait. JOIN US!
