Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBoSC) is an IRC 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization which is dedicated to the promotion of mountain biking in Santa Cruz County in a healthy and sustainable manner. MBOSC is an affiliate club of International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA).
MBoSC was founded in 1997 to raise money towards the purchase of the Gray Whale Ranch that was added to Wilder Ranch State Park.
MBoSC has been the primary driver behind a couple of high profile mountain bike events. We started and have been presenting the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival (SCMBF) since 2010 and started and presented the Santa Cruz Super Enduro in the Demo forest since 2012.
MBoSC helped with the formation of a couple of organizations: Trips for Kids Santa Cruz - which is an affiliate of MBoSC – and the California Enduro Series – of which several MBoSC officers form the board.
We believe that mountain biking is an enjoyable, healthy and environmentally sustainable activity.
We believe that properly designed multi-use trails are the best way to allow everyone to enjoy our open space and teach mutual respect for other users.
We belive that good trail design and ongoing trail maintenance are the biggest factors in mitigating the environmental impact that occurs from use by all user groups.
We promote the idea that mountain biking is a great activity for families and kids which helps to prevent obesity and will result in an appreciation for natural open space.
