Established in 1991, SAMBA is a non-profit organization of people with a passion for mountain biking! We love to explore the spectacular scenery and terrain of Southern Arizona by bike!
SAMBA members have been organizing one or more weekly rides since our inception. You may find us on local Tucson trails or travelling to less frequented areas of the Sonoran Desert and beyond.
Our objective is to promote the enjoyment of mountain biking and nature; to protect and enhance mountain biking opportunities; and to support environmentally and socially responsible use of the land.
We are an IMBA affiliated club and encourage our members to support and participate in like minded organizations, locally and nationally. SAMBA supports the Pima Trails Association, the Arizona Trail Association and is trail steward to a portion of the AZ Trail in the Santa Rita Mountains.
SAMBA welcomes everyone on our rides! You don't have to be a member to join a ride. We enjoy the social aspects of mountain biking as well as the challenges. We try to gear the pace of our rides to the group and stop frequently to regroup. However, we do ride in difficult terrain and suggest that you and your bike to be in fairly good condition in order to enjoy the ride.
