Welcome to CCCMB

We Do Trails - Join Us!
Our Mission
  

The mission of Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers (CCCMB) is to expand the network of sustainable and enjoyable trails in SLO County and to maintain the trails currently in use. Since 1987, we have worked with California State Parks, the National Forest Service, San Luis Obispo City, and San Luis Obispo County in designing and building new trails and maintaining existing ones. 


Help us keep the trails of SLO County open and fun to ride by joining us for trail work. Also, for good karma, be cool with others on the trail: always ride in control and don't run over people, animals or plants.


"Trails aren't BORN - They're designed and built by volunteers - You and I"


DID YOU KNOW?

Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers are the main trail designers and builders in SLO county.  We have been working on local multi use trails in this county for over 27 years.  Over the last two years alone volunteers under our direction have logged over 9,000 hours of trail work.

Montana de Oro Trails Get Upgrades

Volunteers working the Hazard Peak Trail - Montana de Oro

About 40 volunteers turned out between storms last Sunday to perform some badly needed trail work on both Hazard Peak Trail and Oats Peak Trail.  They spent the morning rebuilding worn-down rises and clearing out drains to help prevent erosion ahead this winters upcoming rains (optimistically speaking).  The group consisted of Mountain Bikers, hikers, equestrians and trail runners, who all put in some hard work on these multi-use trails.

Another part of the group took about 15 volunteers about two miles up Oats Peak Trail to rebuild a few of the berms that were broken down.  To help in the effort they even transported some large rocks to reinforce the foundation.

If you would like to help maintain trails in MdO State Park, keep an eye on our calendar for information about our "Super-Bowl Sunday Trail Day".

FASTA Trail Work - Saturday Dec. 6th
Jail Break Trail


Another trail workday is coming up this Saturday to work on the Jail Break trail in the Eucs (next to the Shooters Trail).  This is a "bike skills" area built by FASTA in the middle of the Eucs grove.  It contains lots of jumps and berms along with enough wooden ladder features to test any level rider.  

We will meet at the "lower grove" and work until 1pm.  On Google Maps this trail is labeled as the "YEWKS TRAIL" and can be found here.  It can be accessed by either riding down from the top of Shooters (which starts on the ridge road above Cuesta Grade), or by riding or hiking up from the last gate on Stenner Creek Rd., off Hwy 1 in SLO.

Come out and pitch in so we can get Jail Break open by Spring !!!

Trail Building School at Pismo Preserve

CCCMB really appreciates all the 150+ participants who turned out for the Trail Building School at the Pismo Preserve last weekend.  It was a huge success with lots of good feedback from the IMBA team as well as the "new trail builders".

Here are some links from the IMBA Trail Care Crew visit and a few pictures from the weekend:

160+ Volunteers at 
Trail Werks - Saturday!
6,000'+ of New Trail Built


More than 160 volunteers turned out in the early morning hours
to help build new trails at Trail Werks on Saturday

This year's volunteers collectively created more than 6,000+ ft. of new trail, ate some great breakfast and lunch BBQ food, and took away more than 50 raffle prizes for their efforts.  

A big thanks to the City of SLO, the many sponsors of the event and the organizers for making it happen.  And, a very special THANKS for all those who volunteer their time to help create lasting trails for our community to enjoy.

Trail Building School at Pismo Preserve
is FULL

Pismo Preserve

IMBA Trail Building School at the Pismo Preserve on Nov.22 is FULL.
We Have a Waiting list.

The IMBA Trail Building School is now full.  The response has been nothing short of amazing.  We bumped sign ups to the room capacity of 150 and the room simply won't fit anymore people.

Trail builders who have not previously attended a trail building school are encouraged to sign up on the waiting list.   There is the possibility that experienced trail workers maybe willing to remove themselves from the list so that less experienced trail builders can attend.  Also, since the event is still five weeks out from today's date, Oct. 15, some people may not be able to attend on the event date and drop out.

Here are some interesting facts about who has signed up:
70 are women.
80 are men.
25 are only equestrians
31 are only hikers
10 are only mountain bikers
Everyone else described themselves as some combination of hiker, mountain biker, road biker, trail runner, equestrian, and community group member.

This is why we make multi use trails.   In the words of IMBA Field Programs Specialist Marty Caivano, "you've got a volunteer base most groups would kill for!"

CCCMB is alway willing to train trail builders and crew leaders.  If you're unable to attend this school, just come to a workday and talk to a crew leader.  We'll get you the training you need.


Happy Trails Everyone..

If you still wish to sign up on the waiting list, in hopes someone will cancel, or wish to be considered for 
future trail building classes, sign up below

Recent Trail Workday - East Boundary Trail at MdO


The last trail workday (Sunday, Sept. 21st), was spent widening "The Chutes" near the bottom of East Boundary Trail at MdO.  Volunteers clipped back the brush that has been overtaking the trail during the past year.  A big thank-you to all those who worked Sunday morning, so that everyone who rides the East Boundary Trail can enjoy it even more.



Interesting Stats on "The Trails We Love"

Pismo Preserve "A Done Deal"

Thanks to all the hard work and local donations, the Pismo Preserve is now a "Done Deal".   The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County plans to sign the $12 million purchase agreement in early September and open the park to the public next summer.

The property is currently an undeveloped ranch with 10 miles of ready-made roads and trails that will be available to hikers, cyclists and equestrians. The oak-studded ridge behind Pismo Beach and Shell Beach is included and offer beautiful coastline views.

This preserve is being included in the CCCMB Trail Building Schedule for the upcoming "building season".  The schedule, currently undergoing final revisions, will be published soon. (8-28-14)

CCCMB Receives "Favorite Charity" Award

CCCMB recently receive a $2,000 award from KSBY in the FAVORITE CHARITY contest.  PG&E teamed up with KSBY to give several awards to various charities around the local area who received the most votes.  

CCCMB would like to thank those who voted for our organization.  The money will be a welcome addition for the purchase of trail building equipment and support of the various endeavors that keep our trails open and free to all.


Oats Peak Trail is OPEN to bikers in M.d.O. 

The Oats Peak trail is now open to bikes, hikers and horses in the Montana de Oro State Park.  It is the second highest summit in MDO with both ocean and mountain views.  It offers a 10.8 mile round trip to the peak and back on a trail designed with mountain bikers in mind.  The 5.4 mile gradual ascent gains 1,325 feet of elevation with LOTS of panoramic views.

The old and new trails crisscross, but bike ways are clearly marked.  The last 1/2 mile of the trail has not been improved and it a challenge for bikers with a probably "push" up and a "fun" ride down.  The 360 degree view from the top is spectacular and well worth the push.
