Santa Cruz, CA
Santa Cruz is home to an ever-increasing number of mountain bike businesses, and in many ways it makes sense. The enthusiasm for riding is infectious, the shops are dialed, and the trails feature a fun variety of smooth singletrack, switchback corners, opportunities for small to medium air, and technical climbs and descents.
We start both of our days at Epicenter's Mission Street location, hold progressive morning skill development sessions at the fields at Delaveaga, and then head out to a great variety of local trails after lunch.
We've been teaching in California for over a decade, and we couldn't feel luckier. This year's Santa Cruz camp is co-ed. If you're looking for a women's specific camp in a similar location and at the same time of year, consider coming to see us in Los Gatos, CA.
On the camp weekend, Epicenter Cycling is offering participants 15% off clothing and accessories, parts and labour, and new bikes. Rental bikes for the weekend are $50 per day, and include fitting and suspension set-up. Plus, if you buy a bike from Epicenter after renting, the $50 fee will be applied towards your new bike purchase. Please reserve rentals in advance by contacting Epicenter Cycling at 831-423-9000.

We are proud to have the Dream Inn Santa Cruz as our local accommodation sponsor. The beachfront hotel is located on the historic Beach Boardwalk. They have extended their discounted locals only rate to our Trek Dirt Series participants.
Should you wish to stay at the Dream Inn Santa Cruz at other times, the locals only discount may also be used.
A 2 night minimum stay is required for all Saturday stays. It is a very busy weekend in Santa Cruz, so definitely book early, as space will sell out.
