Everybody who stood-up for trails shared thoughtful comments and represented us as a user group in the best possible way!

Letter Writing Workshop @ Santa Cruz Bicycles Friday, July 26, 5:00-7:00pm
Join MBOSC and Santa Cruz Bicycles this Friday to write a letter to the BLM stating your support for mountain bike access at CCDNM! We'll have everything you need, including stamped and labeled envelopes, pre-written letters, blank paper if you'd like to write your own, and talking points. This is a really easy way to show your support. Santa Cruz Bicycles will be showing their new 50to10 movie in the showroom, and beer from Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery will be aplenty. All you have to do is show up! Remember that public planning is decided by those who show up!
Thanks for making your voice heard!
