First Annual GA SORBA Epic Weekend

Join the Georgia Chapters of the Southern Off Road Bicycle Association for a weekend of IMBA Epic rides and fellowship in the North Georgia mountains!

Inspired by the Nimblewill Mountain Bike Festival of days gone by, we are reviving an annual weekend to celebrate the work of our Georgia SORBA Chapters and the great riding and camaraderie of our Georgia mountain bike community!

In our inaugural year, we could think of no better place to base camp than with our good friends and sponsors Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get Away.

On Saturday, we will ride the Bearhoti route straight out of Mulberry Gap, the classic combination of Bear Creek, Pinhoti section one, Pinhoti section two and then back to the Gap.

On Sunday, we will move over to Bull and Jake Mountains for a Poker Ride and fundraiser for SORBA sponsored by Maxxis, CST, and Finish Line products.

So here are the details:

All reservations for weekend accommodations will be handled through Mulberry Gap.

You can choose your meals and your lodging, whether you want to camp or stay in one of their awesome cabins. A two-night stay is required. Reserve through their website today: https://www.mulberrygap.com/cabin-camping-reservations-mulberry-gap/. Have questions about accommodations? Call 706-698-2865 or emails reservations@mulberrygap.com.

To register for Saturday’s Bearhoti ride, buy a ticket (donation) on the Eventbrite link below. The price for the ride is $15 and covers all facility fees for Mulberry Gap which include parking, wifi, showers, a SAG stop, and a donation to the local trails. Prefer to skip the 4.5 mile gravel climb? You can opt for a seat on the shuttle for an additional $10 and you’ll meet us at the top of the climb. Mulberry is also offering a bagged lunch option for $10. The SAG will be included on the route with water and light snacks. The ride starts from Mulberry Gap in front of the office at 10 A.M sharp. Shuttles leave at 10:30 and are limited to 24 riders. You must buy a ticket here to register for the ride and you will need to sign a waiver on site.

To register for the Poker Ride at Bull Mountain, buy a ticket (donation) at the Eventbrite link below. $25 gets you in on the Poker Ride and the potential to win some great prizes from our sponsors. You will also get a cool stainless steel pint glass to commemorate the ride. All proceeds from this ride will go to aid in future trail maintenance at Bull and Jake Mountains. The Poker Ride will start and end at the Bull Mountain Parking lot. The ride starts at 11:30 A.M. and we will have a cut off of 3:30 P.M. You will need to sign a waiver on site for this ride.

SORBA Rain Policy: In the event the trails are too wet to ride per SORBA’s policy for responsible riding, we will have a gravel route option for both locations. The great news is both Mulberry and Bull Mountain have some of the best gravel riding in the state, so a good time is guaranteed!

Can’t spend the entire weeekend with us but have either day free? Join us for a great day in the mountains for either ride.

Sounds pretty epic right?
