What we're about
Welcome to West Coast Mountain Bikers!
Our group’s purpose is simple. We want to get people out riding whenever and wherever possible. As the Organizer of WCMB, I’m dedicated to helping people get out on the bike more often. I don’t care if you ride every day of the week or just a few times a month. I don’t care if you only ride with us or if you ride with lots of different groups. Mountain Biking for me is a passion that I want to share with everyone I meet. We don't care whether you're a hardened veteran that has seen the sport grow from fully rigid 21-speed bikes to the super machines they are today or someone who just bought their first mountain bike. We don't care if you if this is your first time riding in a group or if you're a member of every mountain biking social group there is.
My team of organizers and I have one simple goal: Try our best to provide you all with the absolute best rides. My team is made up of people from all walks of life from all over the Bay Area. We have Organizers representing nearly every part of the Bay including… the South Bay, East Bay, Peninsula, Santa Cruz and even the Central Valley and we all love to ride and share the ride with others.
Our rides will range from After-work social meetups and workouts to full on epic rides. We ride everywhere, including places that are off the radar of other groups. We ride all the local favorites, i.e. Fremont Older, Arastradero, Santa Teresa, Alum Rock, etc. as well as all the popular spots further outside our immediate area. Some of our favorites include Demo Forest, El Corte de Madera, Fort Ord, and the Many State parks nearby. We’ve also ventured to Tahoe, Downieville, Boggs and many more. As the years progress we will undoubtedly be adding even more exciting and fun places to our ride portfolio.
All of our rides will follow a no-drop policy. If you show up for a ride we’ll make sure you get out with us. Don’t worry about coming out and slowing people down. That sort of fence sitting will never get you out with a group. Come on out with us and we’ll look out for you. No one will be left behind on our rides.
To ensure our members know what they’re getting into we use a pretty basic ride rating system found here in our pages section.
If you ever have questions about our rating system or anything else regarding one of our rides please feel free to email me. I’m always willing to help a fellow rider, especially ones just getting started. We may not be the biggest group in the Bay but we are the best. I will always go out of my way to make my members feel welcome and appreciated. I also promise to never kick you out for not making it to a ride, I understand things happen. If you have idea for a ride or what to help out with hosting events, let me know. I'm always looking for passionate rides that love to share their passion with others on the trails.
Above everything else I just want people to get out and ride.
