Fall 2019 Membership Drive

And as if trails aren’t enough of a reason to give, join or renew with our NE GA SORBA chapter in October for a chance to win a Yeti bike, a Western Spirit trip for two, BikeFlights shipping, a shopping spree at JensonUSA and a Showers Pass clothing package!

New Trail at YPT
JANUARY 13, 2019
YPT Fans, good news! We have opened the newest trail at Yonah Preserve. It is a short warm up loop that is ADA accessable and kid friendly. This completely volunteer built section of trail is accessed from the parking lot and is designated with 50 series trail markers. The entrance is to the right of the boat ramp access road. It is a great warm up loop and is kid friendly as well. Just look at one of our new users on her strider bike enjoying the new segment.

Action Alert: Five Bills for Better Mountain Biking
DECEMBER 12, 2018
Mountain bikers have a rare opportunity to pass important legislation to create, enhance and protect the places we ride by December 21, and this is our last good chance to tell our representatives to act. Congress is working on a package of outdoor recreation bills, many of which IMBA has helped craft and has advocated for throughout this legislative session. It’s time to get these bipartisan bills across the finish line. Please contact your representatives and tell them time is running out—you demand action for outdoor recreation!
The Land and Water Conservation Fund, the Recreation Not Red Tape Act, the RTP Full Funding Act, the Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act, and the Every Kid Outdoors Act all create more and better opportunities for mountain biking and outdoor recreation, all across the country. You can read more about the bills here.
