No Time to Climb, There’s a Festival to Enjoy. The Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival partners with Shuttle Smith Adventures for a fast and easy option to the top of Forest of Nisene Marks, gateway to one of Northern California’s leading freeride and cross-country destinations: Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF). Shred SDSF trails on your own rig or try out your dream bike from one of our demo bike vendors! Afterward, enjoy the 11+ mile fire road descent back to the festival Expo, where good eats, great brews and festival entertainment await.
When: Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14 at 9am, 11am, 1:30pm, and 3:30pm.
Where: Pick up spot in the Expo area, see Festival Map for details. Trail Maps from the shuttle drop-off back to the festival grounds are provided on the shuttle. Legal trails ONLY…please don’t jeopardize our ability to hold events at Demo in the future!
Who & How Much: Anyone & Everyone! $25
Why: Because you want to spend your time shredding Demo’s challenging singletrack loops, not climbing up the fire road!
What if it rains?: Rain the day of may cause the shuttle service to be cancelled by festival officials. In the event of cancellation, shuttle reservations will be refunded minus a $5 processing charge.
