Membership

Why Become a Member?

By joining, you take an active role in protecting access and conserving trails for you and for future generations.

JORBA chapters have been quietly and systematically stewarding and improving many of the best parks in NJ. Maybe you've noticed improvements over the past several years: many trails are getting better, access has been solid and relations with other trail users and land managers is good.

Yet, this does not happen automatically: it takes dedicated, grassroots support and involvement from people like you. By becoming a member of JORBA you will fund JORBAs mission and further improve mountain biking opportunities within the state. Things are good, but they could be much better. Interested? Want to help? We thought you might...

Where does your money go?

It takes money to fund trail building projects, preserve trail access and protect the environment, advocate minimal user impact through sustainable multi-user trails, and maintain trail user harmony across NJ. Your membership dollar funds our mission.

  • Trail Building Tools: in order to build sweet singletrack we require blood sweat and tools. Some of your membership buys our chapters tools such MacLeods, Pulaskis, mattocks, chain saws, and other tools. Some tools, especially big ticket items, are also purchased through grants (federal and state) that we actively pursue.
  • Operational Costs: Part of our mission is to work with land managers, legislators, and stakeholders to open or preserve access, assist with formation of local chapters, and more. Your membership also allows us to pay operational expenses such as this website, educational literature, printing and mailing expenses, etc.
  • Club Insurance: JORBA is required to carry liability insurance. Part of your membership fee goes towards this club insurance.
  • Feeding the Volunteers: when funds are available we like to pay for food, drink and snacks at some trail building sessions. Some of your membership dollar provides for this.
  • Where your funds don't go: we are a 100% volunteer organization. There are no salaries to pay no frivolous expenditures made. After all, we're paying members too and we won't waste our money or yours.
