San Jose Mountain Biking is happy to announce that MBoSC has been given the green light to open sections 3 and 5 of the newly built Flow trail. We'll plan to be out a bit early for a ride up to the top then back down to the bottom of section 5 for the ribbon cutting ceremony. I'll be starting my ride some time in the afternoon when the crowds have hopefully died down a bit, however Krista and I'm sure other Organizers like Tosa and Chaz will be out there in the morning to celebrate the official opening.
We’ve been given the green light to open both completed trail sections—FOX-adopted segment 3 and Epicenter Cycling-adopted segment 5!
You are cordially invited to join MBoSC, CAL FIRE, FOX and Epicenter Cycling on Sunday, June 1 at 11am at the bottom of segment 5 for a brief ceremony and ribbon cutting—then we’ll send you on your way to experience the flow. After a few laps of swoopy goodness, head back to the parking lot to continue the celebration with snacks and beverages provided by Epicenter Cycling, and raffles featuring product and swag donated by FOX.
How To Get There
Riding straight to the opening ceremony? The Demo Flow Trail is beginner friendly but requires fitness to get there. From the Demo parking lot off Highland Way, expect a 4 mile ride to the ceremony location and a 3/4 mile climb to the top of the first open segment, with a 4 mile climb back out to the parking lot. We will have signage posted to keep you on course.
Catching a Braille or Sawpit loop first? You know the drill (and if you don’t, contact us and we’ll hook you up with a map/directions)... just allow for enough time to detour up Tractor 1/3 mile to the bottom of 5 for the 11am ceremony.
Helmets are mandatory; safety gear such as knee and elbow pads are strongly recommended.

A huge shout of gratitude to our project partner California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), and the sponsors, donors and volunteers who have contributed thus far to the Demo Flow Trail project — we couldn’t do it without you! Looking forward to our continued journey ahead!
