I plan on going to the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival and get some Demo bike time in on the local trails. We will ride for a few hours and then spend the afternoon at the Festival. This will be a great way to start your weekend. Look for a group ride on Sunday.



MBoSC is thrilled to report the festival’s return to its popular venue on the Barry Swenson Builder property—site of the world renowned Aptos Post Office Jumps and the Epicenter Pump Track—in Aptos Village. This year will mark the end of this festival venue but MBoSC expresses sincere appreciation for Barry Swenson Builder’s generosity and support over the past several years. Club President Mark Davidson enthuses, “We are very grateful to Barry Swenson Builder for allowing the festival in Aptos Village one last time. They were the driving force for getting the approval from the County of these two temporary bike parks on their property. These parks have been an integral part of the festival and we couldn’t do it without the support of Barry Swenson Builder.” Jesse Nickell, Sr. Vice President of Construction for Barry Swenson Builder adds, “Barry Swenson Builder has provided the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival venue for the past four years. We initially supported the temporary bike parks to show a social need for bike parks so that permanent parks can be built.”

    I'm planning to get a friend with me who doesn't have a bike. Will we get bikes there for riding(like demo) or any possibility of renting.

      You'll need a govt issued photo-id (e.g. driver's license), a credit card, and a helmet to demo a bike.

    Looks like we will have great weather on Saturday, sunny and in the 70's which should bring you all out. Remember, parking will be tight. Arrive early and ride in, they have free secure bike parking at the event.
