Trail building and advocacy non-profit shares vision for mountain biking in Santa Cruz County
Santa Cruz trail building and advocacy organization Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) recently released its 2025 Strategic Plan and Vision, which speaks to a inspired future for mountain biking in Santa Cruz County. The plans can be viewed at mbosc.org/2025vision.
Donations to MBOSC will be matched by a generous donor up to $30k. Its goal is to raise $60k with this campaign.
Since 1997, Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) has worked to support, preserve, and expand trail access and responsible mountain biking in Santa Cruz County.
The trail stewardship organization is comprised of recreational riders, trail builders, racers, and bike industry professionals who promote legal and sustainable mountain bike access through trail building, races, events, and collaboration throughout Santa Cruz County. Strategic partnerships with land managers, other trail users, the local bike industry, and enthusiastic volunteers help MBOSC do what it does best — build fun, sustainable trails.
MBOSC was originally founded to raise funds for the expansion of Wilder Ranch State Park through the purchase of Gray Whale Ranch. Today, MBOSC is made up of hundreds of members and volunteers who contribute hard-earned funds and thousands of hours of effort to support sustainable mountain biking. Nearly all funds raised go toward MBOSC’s advocacy and trail-building efforts. Operating overhead is less than six percent of revenues.
