Welcome to CCCMB
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.

New Fall/Winter Trail Building Schedule
--IMBA Trail Care Crew--
Trail Building School Coming to the new Pismo Preserve
On the IMBA Trail Care Crew will have a one day trail building school at the newly acquired Pismo Preserve. The morning session will be from at the Ventana Grill, just across the freeway from the Pismo Preserve. From the Trail Care Crew along with Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers and the Land Conservancy's Naturalists will show how a bare hillside is transformed into a sustainable, multi-use trail. The finer points of design, lay out, grade reversals, sustainable grade, rolling drain dips, dirt removal, back slope, out slope, tread compaction and finish tread will be covered in depth and demonstrated by the instructors. This is an instructional class, not a day of dirt moving for the students. But don't worry. There will be plenty of dirt moving opportunities on the Pismo Preserve. This is the day where we all get on the same page as to how we will build the new trails.
Please eat breakfast before you come or enjoy a no-host breakfast at the Ventana Grill. Lunch will be provided by CCCMB and be served at the Preserve. Event t-shirts for all compliments of the Land Conservancy.
Please go to the attached link to sign up. Sign-ups are required since the room capacity at the Ventana Grill is, unfortunately, limited to 135. All members of the trail community are invited.
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.

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.
