Today is your last chance to donate $5 to support trails in Santa Cruz County for the opportunity to win a Santa Cruz!

Donors receive one entry for every $5 donated to the MBOSC, but you only have until tonight to enter! The campaign closes Monday, January 13, at 11:59pm PDT. The winner then gets to pick the production Santa Cruz bicycle of their choice as the prize. Donations can be made here
This campaign has been a huge success, and you can help drive it past the finish line. MBOSC has already achieved the original fundraising goal of $100,000, and they are now reaching for a stretch goal of $110,000. This is the most money MBOSC has ever raised for Santa Cruz County trails, and it’s not shocking why. The Sawpit Trail Reroute is currently under construction, and it will be a trail of epic proportions! It’s not only loamy, but also full of new growth trees, meaning there will be lots of patches of glorious sunlight. MBOSC's ultimate goal with the construction of Sawpit Trail is to keep it natural - they’ve left intact rocks, roots, and duff to maximize the fun. By donating to this campaign, you are ensuring not just initial trail construction, but also five years of continued maintenance for all trails in Soquel Demonstration State Forest. Plus, for every $5 you donate, you’ll be entered to win a Santa Cruz Bicycle of your choice!
So what’s stopping you? Donate today to build new trail, maintain existing singletrack, and win a bike! The Return of Sawpit campaign is open until 11:59pm PDT on Monday, January 13, 2020! Click here to donate now!
