Volunteer of the Month: Sponsored by Praxis

imag0402We LOVE Our Volunteers

Volunteers are the cogs in the Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz machine. From the Board of Directors to Trail Crew Leaders, volunteers are behind the scenes making the magic happen.

Our Volunteer of the Month is Lyn Wilkinson, a real stand up guy. He’s a fairly recent transplant to Santa Cruz, hailing from Virginia. His down home sensibility, enriched by a thick Southern accent make him a great guy to have on your side.

Lyn has been a fixture as a MBoSC trail work volunteer. He’s put in countless hours on the Flow Trail and Emma McCrary Trail. He was instrumental to the success of the Harvey West pump track, he helped out extensively operating excavators and skid steers on the project and also masterminded the pump tracks complex drainage system. We couldn’t have done it without him and for that we are thankful. Thanks Lyn!

Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBoSC)  is continuing with another busy season of volunteer work. We have Dig Days scheduled at Wilder Ranch State Park, Pogonip and Delaveaga parks in Santa Cruz, and at Soquel Demonstration Forest. To support these efforts MBoSC is putting on a trail work and crew leader training series.

We depend on volunteers to keep our local trails running in tip top condition, and we rely upon our highly skilled and dedicated crew leaders to help manage volunteers. If you are interested in making a significant contribution to MBoSC’s trail construction and maintenance efforts as a crew leader (or if you just want to learn more about trail building), we encourage you to attend these training events.

There will be both classroom sessions and field based exercises covering trail design, construction, and volunteer management. Classes will be held in the evenings in both Santa Cruz and the San Jose area, and field training sessions will take place on local trails, and at the first volunteer Dig Day of the season.

Classes will be offered in both Santa Cruz and the South Bay.

Once you have completed the series you will be eligible to lead volunteer crews at MBoSC volunteer Dig Days, and well on your way to being a an all star trail builder.
