Rides Policy


Ride leaders Page

Club members volunteer to lead each of our rides. Advice, tips, forms and other good stuff can be found in the Ride Leaders Page.

We're an all volunteer organization and rides don't happen unless members step up to lead them. Want to talk to someone about leading a ride. Contact our Rides Director.


If you want to increase your skills or want to learn more about any aspect of riding join one of the classes we run several times each year or contact a member of our Board.

Great local routes

Our Rides Library is an excellent catalog of many routes in the Santa Cruz area, which you are welcome to use on your own, or as part of leading a club ride. We're an all volunteer organization and rides don't happen unless members lead them.

The Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge

The Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge (aka SCMC) is our annual fundraising event. It is an amazing fondo type ride that showcases some of the best riding and toughest climbs in Santa Cruz County. It attracts hundreds of riders each year. Proceeds benefit cycling education programs in Santa Cruz County. Check out our Grant Recipients. We ask that you volunteer to make it happen. To learn more please contact our SCMC Director.
