    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JORBA Opens Membership

    Pardon the cross-post spamage but this seems somewhat appropriate for this forum.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, 28 May 2007
    Contact: Development Committee, development@jorba.org


    JORBA OPENS MEMBERSHIP

    JORBA (Jersey Off Road Bicycling Association) has opened paid membership and has a fresh new look. JORBA, established in 1996 and long time IMBA affiliate, is a group of New Jersey mountain bikers dedicated to cycling advocacy, education and conservation of New Jersey’s diverse natural resources.

    JORBA is composed of chapters throughout the Garden State which steward the vast network of trails we ride. We work closely with land managers and other user groups on the federal, state and local level to assist with trail maintenance, building and planning sustainable trails, environmental conservation and community outreach initiatives. JORBA has hosted IMBA’s Trail Care Crew, trains and operates numerous National Mountain Bike Patrols and attends the National Bike Summit.

    JORBA chapters host regular group rides, road trips, skills clinics and special bike related events and gatherings. We also have partnerships with regional race directors. The innovative “Paydirt” program, which awards racers with points for time dedicated to trail maintenance, was created by JORBA and has vastly improved volunteer hours throughout the state. Last year JORBA chapters dedicated over 3000 volunteer hours throughout the state.

    Riders of all ages, abilities, areas and riding styles will find a friendly home in one of our chapters. A regular newsletter, t-shirts, jerseys and other swag are given at various membership levels, which will suit any budget. With a statewide unified voice we look forward to maintaining and improving New Jersey’s exciting trails and bike community for present and future generations. For more information please see us on the web at www.jorba.org or visit join.jorba.org to become a member.

    This is a good question.

    In the past, people that have been coming out as volunteers at one of our JORBA sponsored chapter event are defacto members of the JORBA family.

    However, as of yesterday, we've opened up paid memberships (in a fashion similar to IMBA) that includes member benefits, member shwag which varies by membership level, etc. More information on that here:
