MBoSC is happy to announce yet another successful Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival (SCMBF) presented by MBoSC and FOX. Running at an all-new venue — San Lorenzo Park in downtown Santa Cruz — on April 11-12, 2015, the popular community-minded festival drew an estimated 6,000 attendees.
The Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival was created in 2010 to celebrate the world class mountain bike facilities, riders, and cycling industry of Santa Cruz county, with proceeds benefiting local bike projects. The eco-conscious, family-friendly event grows year after year with the generous support of our sponsors, volunteers, and community. The success of the event is a testament to the depth of the mountain bike culture in Santa Cruz County.
Festival Director Justin Becks enthuses, “The 2015 Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival was a huge success. We couldn’t have done it without so many dedicated sponsors, partners and volunteers. San Lorenzo Park was a great home for this year’s festival as it was easy to get to for so many people and easily accessible to miles and miles of rip roaring world class trails. As I strolled through the expo, I heard a lot of people trading stories, getting tips, and sharing their stoke on mountain biking … and that’s what the festival is all about. It was great to see so many families enjoying the sport together.”
98 volunteers pitched in 1,100 hours to organize and run this year’s event which included bike demos, skills clinics, an aerial jump bag, an expanded kids’ area, contests, an expansive vendor fair, beer garden and food court, and live music.
