Our mission is to promote land access, trail preservation, new trail development, and to bring the local mountain bike community together for fun and fellowship.
The SORBA Athens chapter serves as the official voice of mountain biking in the Athens area. We act as liaison to local government and private landowners in order to preserve access to trails in the area as well as encouraging the development of more trails. We currently act as the offical stewards of five trails: Oconee Heritage Park, Hawkes Creek Farm, Payne's Creek, Hard Labor Creek and Trail Creek Park. All are maintained by volunteers from SORBA Athens on a regular basis, with an emphasis on environmentally friendly, sustainable trail design practices. We believe that this spirit of cooperation and responsibility will ensure that we always have a place to ride our bikes.
