IMBA Coming to Clarks Hill, SC, March 25
The International Mountain Bicycling Association is coming to Clarks Hill, SC, and you're invited to join in the special events (schedule below).

Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew leaders Nat and Rachael Lopes, will partner with the Southern Off Road Bicycle Association (http://www.sorba.org) and the US Forest Service (http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/fms/) for the grand opening of the Forks Area Trail System (FATS). Volunteers and guests will arrive at the trail at 9 a.m. for a work party where volunteers will finish the final portions of the trail. The ceremony will be followed by a bicycle tour of the trail.

IMBA has received funding from the National Forest Foundation (http://www.natlforests.org/) to work in 10 National Forests in 2006 to promote volunteerism and foster a stronger trails community. Sumter National Forest has been chosen for this distinction due to the model trail system the FATS represents.

Approximately 100 SORBA members from 8 states are expected to attend.

The joint effort between Long Cane Trails, LLC, the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, the USFS and the Southern Off Road Bicycle Association of the Central Savannah River Area (SORBA-CSRA) has
resulted in the construction of the longest singletrack trail in South Carolina located in Sumter National Forest.
