Upstate SORBAis a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to improving off-road biking within the Upstate Region of South Carolina. We are here to help mountain bikers in our area organize, coordinate efforts and make a real difference. If you are new to the sport or already running your own club, we encourage you to join Upstate SORBA and see what a difference you can make! Together, we can stand strong and help make mountain biking in the Upstate just a little bit better, every year!
- Here are just a few of the things that we do:
- Identify, plan, and support building new trails
- Maintain existing trails in our area
- Organize biking events for fun and for fundraising
- Plan and publish group rides
- Administer training for trail building and safe mountain biking
