Trail head Events
organizing events that involve our local mountain bike community.

A guaranteed good time and often for a great cause, our events are ones to remember.
Spring 2019 demo days - May 3-5

A three day opportunity to try out the latest bikes from Specialized, Yeti, Ibis, and Transition.

Lee McCormack RipRow and Ride clinics - Ongoing!
Lee McCormack has been focusing on developing bike handling techniques, methodology, and mentality for many years, he’s one of the few that thoroughly understands the science behind riding positions, bike geometry, and bike handling. He has published books, taught countless classes, and developed a fitness tool called the RipRow to help riders be stronger on and off the bike. Lee is an encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to riding a bike properly.
While his website (LeeLikesBikes.com) and books are full of valuable knowledge, theres nothing quite like being taught these techniques first hand, on your home trails, and through personalized group lessons. For a limited time, Lee is going to be offering classes that take place here at Trail Head Cyclery and then taken out to the Santa Cruz trails. Whether you are an expert rider, or just someone starting out, one lesson with Lee will be a guaranteed eye opener. Lee will teach fundamental bike handling techniques, use the Riprow to explain techniques and measure your rider area distance (rad), share invaluable knowledge, and best of all, get out on the trails to put newly learned techniques to practice. These lessons are the best investment you can make towards making sure you’re ready for anything on the trails, having more fun while riding, and shredding harder than ever before!
Check out the event page, there’s numerous dates to sign up for and more details in the Eventbrite link. Spots usually fill up pretty quickly so book yourself a class as soon as possible!
Trail Head Sponsored Dig Day with MBOSC - Sunday, Feb 24th
The dig day at Demo forest with Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz was a huge success! We wanted to thank the entire MBOSC organization for organizing the event and every one of the volunteers that came out and gave the Flow Trail some much needed love. Beautiful weather made for a productive day of fixing drainage, refreshing berms, and adding even more flow to the Flow Trail. With around 90 volunteers coming out to lend a hand, we made significant improvements to the Flow trail and had a good time doing it. After all our hard work, we celebrated with post-dig refreshments, (Thanks Archer Components for the beer) and a sweet product raffle. We're proud to sponsor days like these and give back to our local trails. We also wanted to thank all the others sponsors that helped make this dig day such a memorable one.
We hope to see you at our next dig day!
