Clubs Within California

So. Cal. Clubs

Los Angeles: OTBMBC
Over the Bars Mountain Bike Club like to ride our mountain bikes. And have fun. Some of us are faster... some are slower, but everyone has a good time. We ride the mountains surrounding Los Angeles: Verdugo hills, Angeles National Forest, Santa Monica Mountains, and beyond. Check the calendar to see what's coming up.

Los Angeles: NRMTBC
The North Ranch Mountain Bikers is the biggest and oldest mountain bike riding group in the Los Angeles area. We have two or three rides every weekend and ride on many different trails throughout the year. The Santa Monica Mountains, which span Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, provide the location for the majority of our rides. But ever eager to seek out new trails, more technical single-tracks as well as explore, we often have trips to spectacular locations such as the Santa Barbara area, Big Bear, Mammoth, Lake Tahoe, Kernville, Moab, Sedona and more every year. The rides are recreational and cross-country in nature and not for racing.

Orange County: OC Riders
The OC Riders are a great group of riders from Orange County that are avid, and very fast guys that are local Orange County.  There individual riders were final class champions at the Over The Hump race series, and the OC Riders/Rockform team won the team championship.

San Fernando: San Fernando Valley Mountain Bikers
As the name of our group suggests, we usually ride the trails in or around the San Fernando Valley -America's Suburb. We're fortunate enough to be surrounded by many awesome trails for all types of riding and for different levels of skill. Check out our Trail Info Forum for trail maps and routes that our group usually rides. Obviously it's not a complete list yet and we'll be adding more as we get the chance. In the meantime, checkout the Ventura County Trails website for other great trails nearby.

Santa Barbara: SBMTV
For over two decades SBMTV volunteers have provided sustainable trail maintenance, user education, and stewardship for the Santa Barbara area trails.You can become part of this trail community.  Join in on our monthly second Sunday trail work events, Sunday trail rides, and cooperative trail events like State Trails Day.


Nor. Cal. Clubs

Santa Cruz: MBOSC
Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) is an IRC 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization which is dedicated to the promotion of mountain biking in a healthy and environmentally sound manner. MBOSC is an affiliate club of International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA).

Monterey: CCCX

Helmets are required on all rides because mountain biking can be a dangerous activity, even while just hangin’ around before or after a ride!

The SSFTA is a fun social group and our invitation to ride is not an assumption of any liability whatsoever on the Club’s, member’s, sponsor’s, or affiliate’s part. The terrain and group-ride dynamics can be extremely variable and can possibly exceed any rider’s ability at any time. The SSFTA is not responsible for accidents or ignorance on yours or anyone’s part.

Your decision to show up and ride with SSFTA or any of its members, affiliates, sponsors, et al., expressly waives your right to blame anyone else for your or others poor judgment, mishaps, equipment failures, dumb luck, or any other “lame-blame-game” or excuse you or others may harbor or concoct.

Speaking of equipment failures, if yours does, someone else might be able to fix it but you should be prepared to deal with it without counting on others. Wear proper clothing and by all means come prepared to hydrate and nourish yourself before and during the event. You should also consult with a physician before attempting any exercise (and you should consult with a psychiatrist if you have any other issues). Always carry clear identification and insurance cards.
