CCCMB Members and Volunteers at a trail work day
CCCMB began simply as a group of cyclists coming together out of concern about a proposed closing of one of the Central Coast's gems, Montaña de Oro State Park, to mountain bikes. In 1987, amid rumors about the impending closure, we met with State Park staff and volunteered to work to repair erosion problems thought to be associated with mountain bike use on the trails. Since that initial contact, we've expanded our volunteer efforts to include many levels of trail maintenance and construction. As a direct result of our work, trails are still open to cyclists at Montaña de Oro State Park and elsewhere in our region.
In 1989, we decided to organize formally as the Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers (CCCMB). We did so to support and affiliate with the fledgling International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and to give ourselves a cohesive presence here on our Central Coast home. We follow land access issues and try to prevent problems from developing to the point of closure by working with land-managers and by offering positive suggestions and ideas.
