Our members share a common passion for our sport. RAMBO goals include the planning of new trails, maintenance and improvement of existing mountain bike trails used by riders in our area. We also seek to enhance the experience of all levels of mountain bikers… from beginner to hardcore. Both of these goals are served by sponsoring training and instruction sessions, fun community events, trail building parties, and sharing the issues facing mountain biking in our community. If you like what you see and would like to help us improve the area’s MTB scene, then please join RAMBO/SORBA, as a RAMBO Chapter member. $30 a year for a single membership, with discounts for families and multi-year memberships helps secure trail access and promote our sport in our community.
