Community Mountain Bike Ride

Artboard 1

Saturday, February 8, 2020,
9am - 2pm


Grab a bike and hit the trail with Jacquie Phelan, Girls Rock Santa Cruz, WTF Bikexplorers, and Bike Santa Cruz County.

Explore the trails of Santa Cruz on a guided mountain bike ride and learn about local organizations working to build more inclusivity within the mountain biking community. Whether you're a first-timer or seasoned shredder this is a great chance to meet new riding buddies and check out the exhibition Trailblazers on view at The MAH starting February 7th, 2020.

Plus, ride with mountain biking legend, Jacquie Phelan (aka Alice B. Toeclips).

Jacquie was the first woman inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame and will be leading this trail ride. Get to know Jacquie and learn about how she started WOMBATS, an off-road cycling network that hosted the very first mountain biking skill-building workshops. Plus, see first hand how WOMBATS cleared the trails for other organizations like Girls Rock and the WTF Bikexplorers to be hosting the kind of inclusive and empowering programs they are today.
