Southern Mountain Bike Summit


IMBA-SORBA and its chapters Pisgah Area SORBA and Upstate SORBA are so very proud to announce the very first Southern Mountain Bike Summit in Brevard, NC, March 25th-27th, 2011. It’s a celebration, it’s education, it’s advocacy, and we invite YOU to attend! Our theme for the event is Great Riding in the South (GRITS, yes!), and without you there wouldn’t be GRITS! Without YOU GRITS won’t get better! So, come on over for the greatest mountain biking advocacy event ever held in the Southeast!

Keynote address: The Summit kicks off with Keynote Speaker Krista Rettig of Trek Bicycles. Krista is a pistol, a wonderful speaker who is totally committed to getting riders on the trail, particularly women and families. Come listen and learn from this industry leader!

Sessions—Friday and Saturday are full of informational sessions led by experts from governmental agencies, advocates, and industry leaders. Learn how to partner with the US Forest Service, how other areas have successfully created trail communities (not just great trails), how to be an effective Mountain Bike Patroller, how to be a more effective leader, and much more!

Rides—Pisgah National Forest. DuPont State Park. Trek demos. Need we say more?

Silent Auction—Support PAS, Upstate SORBA, and the local Bracken Mountain Trail project by bidding on fantastic merchandise and services.

Socials—Hang out with friends, old and new, and talk about, what else? All things mountain biking!
