By becoming an OMBA member you are contributing to the continued growth and maintenance of the best mountain bike trails Florida has to offer. All donations and membership proceeds go directly to purchasing and maintaining trail building equipment and supplies. The club offers several individual and group membership levels:
- Individual - $20
- Family - $30
- Lifetime - $100
The Santos trails are built and maintained by the Ocala Mountain Bike Association
OMBA is the result of a request by the Florida Greenways Commission and the Marion Parks and Recreation Department to create one entity representing the common interests of mountain bikers with which they could communicate
It was at this point in time, the early 90’s, that 10 to 15 local riders created the Non-Profit Association with one goal in mind – to gain legal access to the area now known at the Santo Trail Head. In agreeing to let mountain bikers have legal access to the trails, the state required OMBA to maintain the existing trail system. They also informed OMBA that any trail improvements would require volunteers. In order to maintain and build trails, funds are needed to purchase equipment and supplies. Without OMBA, legal access to the Santos Trail Head and future development of new trails would not and will not exist, as we now know it.
Please help us sustain this effort by joining the club or, donating tools. Currently the Santos trail system is undergoing significant changes, as a result of a study done by the International Mountain Bike Association. There is as always, lots of trail work to be done, and the club is in need of additional tools for this trailwork.
