Mountain Bikers Of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) is would like to thank you all for your attendance and participation in our Second Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival on April 9th and 10th, 2011 in Aptos Village, California.

We had a blast and are quite satisfied with the event. It exceeded our expectations. The organizing team and volunteers were tired but satisfied. All the feedback from vendors, spectators, athletes and neighbors were all positive and we raised over $10,000 towards a new bike park in Aptos – when ever they are ready. We have nice post festival after glow which carried us into the Sea Otter Classic the following weekend.

Please see this gallery for an awesome slideshow of the event.

Also, check out some of the videos from the event.

And Finally!

A very special thanks to our sponsors, athletes and spectators for supporting this event. This has been a volunteer grass roots effort and a labor of love for all of us. We believe that Santa Cruz County has some of the best mountain biking in the world and it was an honor to show the world.

See you next year!

We are in the planning stages for the 2012 Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival – April 14-15, 2012 at the same venue – which will probably be the last time before Aptos Village is expanded (seriously).

Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering for or sponsoring the 2012 festival.

Once again, our amazing promo video…
