Ways to get involved

GVORBA welcomes your active participation and support. Here’s how you can get involved:

Become a Member

Join GVORBA, an IMBA chapter, and help support trail maintenance, development, and advocacy within the Greenbrier Valley region of WV.  As a member you will be kept up to date on meetings, trail maintenance, and events.  In addition you will be directly contributing to creating and maintaining the trails and community we all love.

Donate

Your financial contributions are instrumental in building and maintaining trails, organizing events, and supporting youth biking programs. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference and brings us closer to our goals.

 

Volunteer

Your time and energy can be just as valuable as financial support. Volunteer opportunities range from trail maintenance and clean-up days to assisting with events and community engagement. Your hands-on involvement strengthens the biking community and helps us continue our mission.

 

IMBA-GVORBA Membership

In our effort to promote trails and biking in Greenbrier Valley, the Greenbrier Valley Off-Road Biking Association (GVORBA) has become a member organization of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA).

IMBA Local member organizations, like GVORBA, are member-based groups focused on trails, access, rides and social events on close-to-home trails. IMBA works with IMBA Local partners to support and enhance trail building, advocacy and organizational efforts.

IMBA-GVORBA provides combined membership to cyclists that live in Greenbrier Valley and the greater south-central West Virginia region.

Join IMBA-GVORBA and join a movement dedicated to cycling and trail advocacy. Your support is critical in improving riding opportunities across the area. When you join your local group, your membership contribution entitles you to great benefits! Membership resides solely with IMBA Local associations, so more money than ever goes toward your close-to-home trails.
