For Santa Cruz By Santa Cruz: a fundraiser for MBoSC!

Print

Santa Cruz Bicycles is teaming up with local trail advocacy organization, Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBoSC), to help out with local trail advocacy, development and maintenance efforts. These two organizations both want to see more opportunities for mountain bikers in their own back yard. This means more trail access, new bike parks, and new trail construction.

Here is the deal: If you contribute to this fundraiser you will be entered into a drawing for any bike from Santa Cruz Bicycles in your preference of size, color or build kit from their current web catalog. This includes (but not limited to) the Nomad, Bronson, 5010 or the new Hightower. Any bike, any size, any color, any build! Dreamy.

Each $5 donation qualifies for a ticket in the drawing. 100% of the money raised goes toward trail and bike park development, as well as trail maintenance in Santa Cruz county.
