Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) has announced that the third annual Santa Cruz Old Cabin Classic will take place in Wilder Ranch State Park on May 19, 2018. This cross country race is a throwback to the early days of mountain bike racing and is a celebration of the sport. With a festival atmosphere, artisan showcase, vintage bike display, kids’ rodeo, delicious food, and a beer garden, there is something to make sure the whole family has a great time.

The event is a homage to its iconic venue and a testament to the partnership between California State Parks and the mountain bike community who are working together to make our local trails the best they can be. The race is being held as a benefit for mountain biking in Santa Cruz County, and a significant portion of the proceeds will go directly into a fund earmarked for trail development at Wilder Ranch.

Registration opens Thursday, March 1 at 7:00pm. Learn more at mbosc.org.
