Well, hello April! Can it really be April 1 already? Who’s down to join us this coming weekend (April 5-6) in Aptos Village, CA for our 5th annual festival? We’ve sure come a long way since our very first event at Depot Park in 2010. Check out all the exciting comps and skills clinics plus an inspired list of expo activities lined up for this year’s festival!
AMATEUR DIRT JUMPERS TAKE NOTE
Some late breaking news that you may not yet have heard: Freeride legend and Santa Cruz local Cam McCaul is bringing a fresh twist to this year’s 831 JUMP JAM & CONTEST sponsored by Trek and Epicenter Cycling. We’re amped to announce that the amateur portion of this event is a Freeride Mountain Bike (FMB) World Tour Bronze event! Up & coming riders, here’s your chance to show your talent, gain experience and earn points for the FMB US amateur series. FMB Bronze events offer amateur athletes an achievable way to work up to pro ranks—register now and get ready to send it into the big time!
In other news, we’d like to remind y’all that we strive to be a Zero Waste Event. Our operations will be powered by the sun courtesy Sandbar Solar. Carpooling and biking to the event will further diminish the festival’s impact on the planet. Free, secure bike valet parking on the Expo grounds will be provided by People Power of Santa Cruz. Bottled water will not be available for sale; however, HydroLogic will provide filtered water, so please bring your reusable water bottles and leave the bottled water behind. Alternatively, you can purchase our commemorative SCMBF mason jar at the beer garden or merchandise booth, and feel good knowing you’re helping the environment, funding bike projects and bringing home a super sweet memento of a great time!
RAFFLES, SILENT AUCTION, SCMBF COMMEMORATIVE MERCHANDISE, YES PLEASE
Speaking of turning your dollars into new trails and other bike projects by purchasing rad commemorative products—be sure to swing by our merchandise booth to check out this year’s ALL NEW t-shirt and socks designs. You’ll want one or both, guaranteed! Also make a stop at the raffle booth where you can purchase $1 and $5 tickets for the chance to win some impressive gear.
