Registration for the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival is now OPEN! The festival is a celebration of wheels on dirt in Santa Cruz County and will be in Aptos Village from April 14-15, 2012.
We are featuring the Bell Super Enduro at Demo – a physically challenging multi-stage race traveling a distance of 25+ miles with over 5000 ft of climbing over 6 hours. The Enduro race format is popular in Europe and is starting to take hold in North America. It represents an exciting evolution of mountain bike racing that reflects how we ride in the forest with our friends. This Super Enduro will be the first legally sanctioned race at Soquel Demonstration State Forest!
There are limited entries to this race and we are accepting applications for the Bell Super Enduro at Demo until February 17, 2012. Please submit your application!
Also on the schedule are popular events from last year such as: 831 Jump Contest, Pump Track Pandemonium and the Specialized/Scotts Valley Cycle Sport Short Track. We will also feature Bike Skills Clinics, the WTB All Mountain Challenge (Pump, Shred, and Endure), and the Specialized/Scotts Valley Cycle Sport Kids’ Rodeo.
We have openings for sponsorships and volunteers. Please contact us if you are interested.
The mission of the SCMBF is to celebrate mountain biking in Santa Cruz County by bringing people together to participate and spectate in competitive and recreational mountain bike events, and a festival to bring the community together to advocate an active outdoor lifestyle and promote the world class mountain biking facilities and riders in Santa Cruz County.
