Santa Cruz is an amazing place to ride a mountain bike, but finding all the great trails can be challenging. Don’t waste your precious riding time messing with maps at every intersection or risk riding the wrong side of the mountain missing out on all the goods. Whether you’re looking for a cross country ride with ocean views, a gravity fed rip on some more technical tracks or a mixture with everything in between…we’ve got you covered! Let us show you a locals view on our home trails and help you find your dream ride.

We often like to start our rides with a shot of locally roasted espresso and finish with one of Santa Cruz’s finest craft brews and some tasty farm to table cuisine……we’ll point you in the direction of the best spots in town for that as well!

*Please inquire about our pricing for groups over 4 riders. Required deposit for a guided ride is $49 (1hr) – with a 48hr cancellation notice prior to scheduled ride. **Guide rate does not include bike rental or equipment. We partner with several great local bike shops for your bike rental needs.

Finding your Flow…..

In addition to thrilling guided rides of loamy redwood forest, Ride the Redwoods also provides individual and group instruction for riding skills development!

Although the allure of mountain biking may be different for each rider, one thing is universal… confidence and handling skills = FUN… Practicing and perfecting mountain bike handling is the single most important thing you can do to increase not only your pure enjoyment on the trail, but your safety and longevity as a rider as well.

With customized lessons to suit individuals and groups that can be tailored for time and current skill level, as well as combined with exciting guided tours of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Whether you’re new to mountain biking or an advanced rider, our instructors will get you set on the path to success and ultimately help you get the most enjoyment out of this sport that we love so much. After all, having FUN is why we mountain bike…. and that’s what the instructors here at Ride the Redwoods are all about!
