The Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival (SCMBF) — presented by Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBoSC) and FOX — returned to its roots for 2015. Now in its sixth year, the festival was held in San Lorenzo Park April 11-12, 2015. The all-new venue, right in the heart of downtown Santa Cruz, drew an estimated 6,000 attendees.

Check out the full recap of 2015 here.

The event was created in 2010 to celebrate the world class mountain bike facilities, riders, and cycling industry of Santa Cruz County, with proceeds benefiting local bike projects. The eco-conscious, family-friendly event grows year after year with the generous support of our sponsors, volunteers, and community. The success of the event is a testament to the depth of the mountain bike culture in Santa Cruz County.

Ninety-eight volunteers pitched in 1,100 hours to organize and run 2015’s event which included bike demos, skills clinics, an aerial jump bag, an expanded kids’ area, contests, an expansive vendor fair, beer garden and food court, and live music.
