Welcome!!! Trail enthusiasts in Paulding, Douglas and Cobb Counties have joined together to form the West Georgia Chapter of IMBA-SORBA. We are very excited about this new relationship. Bringing together the resources of the three counties will allow us to better serve and grow the mountain bike community than we could do separately.
Outdoor Adventure Festival

Acworth, GA 30101
The second annual Outdoor Adventure Festival will take place Saturday, August 16th 2014. This is a free, family-friendly festival that will begin at 9:00am and goes on until noon. The festival will be held at the Cobb County Corps Property (Allatoona Creek Trails).
Participants will enjoy outdoor recreation and conservation activities through a variety of how-to sessions. Expert facilitators will introduce participants to activities such as: archery, birding, boating safety, bicycling, trapping, fly fishing, obstacle courses, shooting sports and hunting safety. Outdoor vendors will also be on hand to show the latest and greatest outdoor products.
The festival will have bicycle, running and hiking activities. Guided hikes are planned as well as guided trail runs. Bicycle demos will be on hand to let you try out the newest bikes on the market. There will be several bicycle contests for adults and kids such as: wheelie contest, limbo, bike toss and a slow race. For those outdoors men, women and kids who like to show off two activities at once, there will be a bicycle biathlon. The bicycle biathlon will be very similar to what you would see at the Winter Olympics; of course with a bicycle instead of cross country skis.
Our take a kid mtb and chapter festival was a huge succeess at Mt Tabor with 50 kids attending.
We were able to donate 14 bicycles and helmets to deserving kids thanks to Boneshaker Bicycles, Hardy Chevrolet, Paulding Police Dept and the donations of chapter members. We had a small time trial, cookout and were able to rollout our mountain bike patrol for the 3 counties.
Wecycle Paulding was on hand to explain their program and also had some magic! Great to see the kids learn to ride, take off training wheels, go over obstacles and just tearup the kids loop.
Rain overnight cancelled the group rides this year. Great time had by all and look forward to next year.
