Build a bond with a mentor through exciting outdoor sports

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Cape Fear Southern Off-Road Bike Association (SORBA) is holding its first official session of its Trail Buddies Program this Saturday, March 22, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Brunswick Nature Park.
 
The mission of the Trail Buddies Program is to provide grade school youth the opportunity to discover the joys of mountain biking, while educating them on the basics of trail riding, trail and bicycle maintenance, and safety precautions.

The Trail Buddies Program aims to build lasting relationships between Cape Fear SORBA mentors, other cycling role models, and the participants.
 
This program targets ages 7 to 14-years-old, but all ages are welcomed.  At each session the participants will be divided into groups by age and skill level. 

The Trail Buddies Program is free to the participants.

Cape Fear SORBA provides and maintains all the bicycles, gear, and supplies used for the program.  They have been able to fund this not for profit program, through the donations of local individuals and businesses.
 
This Saturday, the SORBA crew will be guiding a group of 20 kids who are part of the First Baptist Church of Wilmington youth group.  

This is event will be the first of many Trail Buddies sessions.
