April 5 – 6, Aptos
SCMBF returns for its fifth year
Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBoSC) brings back their popular community event—the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival (SCMBF)—for its fifth year on April 5-6, 2014, the weekend before the Sea Otter Classic in nearby Monterey. MBoSC thanks FOX for their continued support as title sponsor and is grateful to venue sponsor Barry Swenson Builder for a final run at their Aptos Village property, site of the renowned Aptos Post Office Jumps.
The Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival was created to celebrate the world class mountain bike facilities, riders, and cycling industry of Santa Cruz county and continues to grow year after year with the generous support of our sponsors, volunteers, and community.
In just its fourth year, the 2013 eco-conscious festival drew over 9,000 attendees and 395 registered participants—a 50% increase in attendance and 220% increase in registered participation over 2012. The success of the event is a testament to the depth of the mountain bike culture in Santa Cruz county.
The family-friendly two day, volunteer-run festival includes competitive events for pros and amateurs alike, a kids’ rodeo and fun lap, bike demos, skills clinics, an industry exposition area, food court, beer garden, live music and more for bike enthusiasts, family members, and friends.
The event reflects what Santa Cruz is all about: loving the outdoors, meeting friendly people, kicking back and immersing yourself in your favorite sport. www.santacruzmountainbikefestival.com www.mbosc.org
