About Appalachian Mountain Bike Club

The Appalachian Mountain Bike Club is a chapter of the Southeast regional division of IMBA. We are committed to complementing the goals and purpose of IMBA. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable trail access for off-road bicyclists and to maintaining the trails on which mountain bikers ride and other user groups rely on. The Appalachian Mountain Bike Club supports the conservation of open spaces and is committed to educating mountain bicyclists to ride sensitively and responsibly in order to protect the natural environment and the experience of other trail users.


SORBA (Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association) is a member-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, officially chartered organization devoted to promoting 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 publish the “Fat Tire Times,” to keep members informed of important issues, organized rides, work parties, races, socials, festivals and other events. We hold our mountain bike events to raise awareness of land access and trail maintenance, to ride, to race and to just have fun. Membership in SORBA entitles you to some great things— come join us!
