Shuttles – Does your idea of dream ride start with a climb complete with a cup of coffee in one hand, arriving at the top without a drop of sweat? If so then we’ll start our day with our friends aboard Shuttlesmith Adventures‘ escape pod that comes pre-loaded with stoke. The shuttle services our rides at both Nisene and Soquel Demonstration Forests and with sufficient notice we can service most locations in Santa Cruz County.

Post Ride – We know the ride doesn’t end at the trailhead, often the best part of your riding holiday begins after you’re off the bike. Your guides know the best spots in town for food and drink and are happy to make the recommendations that turn your “out of towner” ride into a “one of the crew” experience. Don’t miss out on the best of Santa Cruz, let us make your visit to the center of the mountain biking universe one that you’ll never forget!
