Volunteer

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.

Trail Work
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 continues this legacy on the current Flow Trail at Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF) project. Learn more about this progressive trail and how you can help. Volunteer Trail Work Days are scheduled to take place twice a month throughout the winter build season. If digging’s not your thing, check out our Help Wanted list for other ways you can pitch in.

Advocacy
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.

Events
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 State Forest (SDSF) every year, and has been the final event in the California Enduro Series for the last two years. 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.
