Membership Matching Program
When you join before Jan 31, 2019, the power of your membership will be amplified! All membership dues will matched by generous donors, which means your membership does twice as much to support trails in the Santa Cruz area.
We know you’re proud to be a member of MBOSC, and we are making it easy for you to show it! Depending on which membership level you select, you’ll be the lucky owner of some awesome new MBOSC gear, and some of it is available only to MBOSC members! Not into merch? You’ll also have an option to opt-out of receiving swag if you’d rather have all your membership dues go towards trails.
MBOSC Members Only ShirtsIf you're join at the Trail Guardian level or above, you'll be the lucky owner of one of the best t-shirts we've ever made, and only members can get this design! You have the choice between a men's/unisex t-shirt and a women's racer back tank, and youth t-shirts are available too!
If you’re a Trail Champion or higher, you’ll be getting some fresh new wool socks! We know nobody loves poison oak, but like it or not, it’s a mainstay of Santa Cruz trails. We worked with the fine folks at Giro Sport Design to create a custom graphic on their Seasonal Merino Wool Sock, which is one of our all-time favorite socks for mountain biking. We love how they deconstructed our logo to create this awesome graphic, and we can’t wait to see it out on the trails!
MBOSC MTB Jerseys
Our top two membership tiers, Trail Hero and Trail Angel, will get a fresh new jersey for their next trail rides! This is a great mtb jersey made by MBOSC's official apparel partner, Jakroo. The jersey is Jakroo's Ridgeline model, which has a 3/4 sleeve and is designed for trail riding. The generous cut accommodates the use of padding or armor under the jersey while maintaining freedom of movement.
