Recap: Santa Cruz Bikes April 8 Dig Day
Industry friends in town for the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival and Sea Otter Classic made their way into the Demo forest on Tuesday, April 8 to check out the flow and help dig a bit with our regular volunteers. Fueled by grub sponsored by Santa Cruz Bicycles (thank you SCB!), the crew worked hard on the FOX-adopted segment 3, shaping berms and rollers, and re-naturalizing finished areas.

Mick’s Automotive Sponsors Next Dig, Saturday April 19
Mick’s Automotive will be providing hospitality for our next volunteer work event, Saturday April 19. This full service Santa Cruz auto repair shop specializing in the maintenance and repair of select Japanese vehicles is committed to providing hospitality for volunteer work events throughout the project. Huge thanks to our friends at Mick’s! Finishing work on Epicenter Cycling-adopted segment 5 and FOX-adopted segment 3 are in the dig day plan.

Can’t make this Saturday’s trail building? Santa Cruz Bicycles sponsors the next dig Saturday, May 3.

>>Sign up here to secure your spot on either or both crew (s).

Home stretch for Bell Built Voting (Sunday 4/20 deadline)!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you know that our Demo Flow Trail project is up for a $33k grant which would go a long way toward completing this 4 mile feature-laden purpose-built trail that swoops through our beautiful Demo forest. You also know that this progressive trail is designed for all rider abilities from beginner to pro and is an excellent example of how local mountain biking enthusiasts and land managers can work together to build new trails in a sustainable way.

>>What can you do to help promote this incredible fundraising opportunity? Please VOTE DEMO FLOW TRAIL by Sunday 4/20 and download this “What You Can Do” sheet for ideas on, well, what you can do!
