GHORBA was formed in September 1999 when the Houston Area Mountain Bike Riders Association (HAMBRA) and the Memorial Park Mountain Bike Association (MPMBA) joined forces to save the trails in Memorial Park from closure to all cyclists. Over the years GHORBA has expanded trail interests to dozens of Houston Area mountain bike trails.
GHORBA is a non-profit 501c(3) corporation. It generates its operating revenue from your membership dues, organizing a TMBRA series mountain bike race, and grants and donations from biking and outdoor-related businesses as well as Houston-area corporations.
