Volunteers are the cogs in the Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz machine. From the Board of Directors to Trail Crew Leaders, volunteers are making the magic happen. If you are interested in getting involved, MBoSC has a place for you.
Volunteers are an integral part of MBoSC’s trail projects. 302 volunteers put in over 3,500 hours of labor on the Emma McCrary Trail in The Pogonip. MBoSC is working to continue this legacy on the current Flow Trail at Demo project through a volunteer crew leader training course. Check our calendar and the Flow Trail at Demo page for upcoming trail work opportunities.
With the abundance of public land surrounding Santa Cruz, it is important that MBoSC maintain open and positive communication with local land managers. Volunteers are needed to spearhead new projects and to work as liaisons between MBoSC and local land management agencies. As MBoSC’s trail building capacity increases, so must its capacity for cooperation with other organizations.
MBoSC puts on several events every year. The Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival takes place every spring and is a celebration of fat tire fun. With an industry expo, pump track and short track races, a kids rodeo, a dirt jump contest and pro jam, skills clinics, bike demos and more, the festival is an A+, #1 good time. It’s also one of MBoSC’s biggest fundraising events of the year. This is a great opportunity to volunteer for the club. Whether you are interested in helping to plan the event, or just want to come out and help for the weekend, your help is greatly appreciated.
The Santa Cruz Super Enduro takes place in Soquel Demonstration Forest every October, and is the final event in the California Enduro Series. The race traverses some of the best trails in the county and is a hugely popular event, selling out in a matter of hours. The event is made possible by volunteers who take care of everything from timing to serving up food to hungry racers after the finish. This is a great opportunity to help out with a spectacular event that benefits our mountain biking community.
