Today was the start of something great! As we woke up the sun had not yet emerged over the horizon. The sky was growing a brighter blue with every passing moment and the anticipation was building for a great day of riding. First thing first, we headed out onto the I5 to drive from Redding to Santa Cruz. Once we arrived, Adam from MTBR.com and his friend Nelson were ready to show us the ropes.
Santa Cruz is made up of some smooth, fast trails. Weather you are an all-mountain warrior or a world cup racer, their is something for everyone to enjoy. With some fast singletrack, railed burms and a few kickers along the way. it is easy to see why some of the best riders in the world congregate around the Santa Cruz area.
