Guelph Off-Road Bicycling Association

Welcome to GORBA!

The Guelph Off-Road Bicycle Association is a volunteer organization committed to MTB riding in the greater Guelph area. We currently maintain two riding areas equalling over 1000 acres with almost 40 kms of varying trails. Our Guelph Lake Trail system is open to the public and our Arkell Spring Grounds Trails are for members only. We also organize group rides for our members. These rides are for different speed groups, for women and for children. Join today for a very low price to get access to all our trails and our wonderful group rides. GORBA, since 1992!

Land Acknowledgement

The Guelph Lakes and Arkell Springs Trail systems reside on lands managed by the GCRA and the City of Guelph. These are the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, who have a unique and ongoing relationship with this land. We recognize the injustices of colonial influences and the hardship forced upon our Indigenous partners. The GORBA membership and the greater community of mountain bikers are grateful to have the privilege of experiencing the natural beauty of these areas.
