PRESS RELEASE — March 25, 2014, Aptos Village CA — The 5th annual Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival (SCMBF), presented by Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBoSC) and FOX, today announced Expo Area activities and vendors. This eco-conscious, volunteer-run fundraiser for local bike projects returns to its popular Barry Swenson Builder venue in Aptos Village April 5-6, 2014, the weekend before the Sea Otter Classic in nearby Monterey.

Open from 9am-6pm Saturday and 9am-5pm Sunday, there is no cost to enter the Expo Area which offers a wide range of activities for the whole family plus a varied selection of industry manufacturers and retailers. In the Expo Area, attendees will find:

In addition to an extensive Expo Area, the festival offers competitive events for pros and amateurs alike including the Bell Pump Track Pandemonium Comp, the Trek/Epicenter Cycling 831 Jump Jam & Contest (an FMB World Tour Bronze Event!), and Sweetlines Sugar Showdown Santa Cruz women-specific jump class and contest. Youth 3-12 can “race” around the short track on the Specialized/Scotts Valley Cycle Sport Kids’ Fun Lap. Clinics presented by Sweetlines/Clif Bar include basic mountain bike skills (taught by an impressive list of pro coaches) and enduro skills (taught by AllRide’s Kirt and Lindsey Voreis).

The Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival was created to celebrate the world class mountain bike facilities, riders, and cycling industry of Santa Cruz county and continues to grow year after year with the generous support of its sponsors, volunteers, and community. In just its fourth year, the 2013 eco-conscious festival drew over 9,000 attendees and 395 registered participants—a 50% increase in attendance and 220% increase in registered participation over 2012. The event reflects what Santa Cruz is all about: loving the outdoors, meeting friendly people, kicking back and immersing yourself in your favorite sport, and its success is a testament to the depth of the mountain bike culture in Santa Cruz county.
