Santa Cruz, CA – August 21, 2013 Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBoSC) is excited to extend its tent camping package to race spectators for the weekend of the BELL Santa Cruz Super Enduro, Friday October 11 to Sunday October 13 at Camp Loma, adjacent to the race venue at Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF, commonly referred to as Demo).

To fully enjoy the BELL Santa Cruz Super Enduro weekend festivities, racers and spectators alike are encouraged to take advantage of this comprehensive camping package ($30 per person) which includes a tent spot for two nights (Friday and Saturday) plus three meals (Saturday breakfast and dinner; Sunday breakfast), plenty of beer, a post-awards bonfire and an outdoor screening of Anthill’s latest film “Arrival” (starring Santa Cruz local Ryan “R-Dog” Howard). Other non-race activities scheduled for the weekend include fun rides, trail work and bike demos.

Racers and spectators will appreciate a spot to bunk down pre- and post-race at this remote venue, and the laid-back camping vibe goes hand-in-hand with the spirit of enduro.

The limited number of camping spots are expected to sell out quickly. Tent camping ONLY is offered; RV’s and campers are NOT allowed at this event. Showers and flush toilets are available on site. With vehicle parking limited, campers are encouraged to carpool or shuttle up from Aptos with Shuttle Smith Adventures. Camping is NOT permitted in Soquel Demonstration State Forest.

The BELL Santa Cruz Super Enduro — which filled all 200 spots in just over 2 hours — will cap off the inaugural season of the highly successful California Enduro Series (CES). Volunteers are needed for a variety of positions and will be rewarded with free camping, food, beer and swag.

MBoSC greatly appreciates the support of the 2013 SCSE’s title sponsor BELL as well as event sponsors Clif Bar, Dirt Rag magazine, ENDURO Mountain Bike Magazine, Formula, FOX, Gamut USA, Gravity Anomaly, GU Energy, Kali Protectives, Marin Bikes, Pivot Cycles, Saris/CycleOps, Sports Basement and Trail Head Cyclery. The support of Soquel Demonstration State Forest land manager CAL Fire is also greatly appreciated.

The mission of the Santa Cruz Super Enduro is to support the demand for quality enduro race opportunities in California, to promote the world class mountain biking trails in Santa Cruz County and to bring awareness to the Santa Cruz community at large about mountain biking and the positive role it can play economically, socially and environmentally.
