About Us

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.

We are recreational riders, trail builders, racers, bike industry professionals, and general mountain bike nuts who promote legal and sustainable mountain bike access through trail-building, races, events, and collaboration throughout our county.  Strategic partnerships with land managers, other trail users, the local bike industry, and enthusiastic volunteers help MBOSC do what we do best—build cool 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 6 percent of revenues.

MBOSC boasts an impressive number of achievements and current projects. We welcome you to explore all that’s happening with mountain biking in Santa Cruz County.
