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 me!"

The Latest News...

Wednesday Trail Workers 
Last Wednesday, about 10 people showed up on a warm day to work on the Ocean View Trail.  "We are making good progress and are getting close to the top", said Gary Felsman, a dedicated hiker,  who is out almost every Wednesday morning to help CCCMB build trails throughout the county. 


Come out on Wednesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. to help construct this new multi-use trail. Meet at the Home Depot Parking Lot left of the Garden Center for a ride up the hill. Then, it is a 1.6 mile hike to the work site.  Bring water, snacks, and hiking boots/shoes.  Tools and good company will be provided.

New Stenner "Flow Trail" Opens
Flow Trail Video HERE Experience the entire trail from top to bottom!
Opening Ceremony of the Stenner Flow Trail
After months of hard work by a 20+ group of volunteers named the "Wednesday Trail Workers", the new Stenner Flow Trail is now open for business.  The opening ceremony took place last Wednesday as workers were putting the final touches on this new unique mountain bike trail.

This new trail is considered a one-way downhill bike-only trail that starts at the bottom end of "The Eucs", below the Shooters Trail (see the West Cuesta Ridge Trail Map Here).  There are two ways to reach the Flow Trail, the first of which is to ride from the top of Cuesta Grade, down the Shooters Trail, then through the Yewks.  For those coming from San Luis Obispo, ride or drive up Stenner Canyon Rd. to the parking area, then continue all the way up the Elevator Trail to the Eucss.  From the bottom of The Eucs, the Flow Trail takes off to the left, and at the beginning shares parts of the two-way Elevator Trail.  After branching off a third of the way down, it becomes purely a one-way, downhill "flow" trail, with berms, and other features for the intermediate to advanced rider.  

It took the help of many volunteers over several months to complete the Flow Trail

The trail is the brainchild of Neils Grether, an avid mountain biker and member of CCCMB.  During his senior year at Cal Poly, Neils saw the need for this type of trail in our county and decided to make it his senior project.  The full project included design, obtaining all the necessary permits, layout, flagging, and overseeing construction.  The entire project took over a year to complete with lots of help and support along the way.

 
Neil Grether began the trail as a Cal Poly senior Project

The trail was built over the course of many months by a 
coalition of workers including members of CCCMB, local hiker groups, other volunteers and the generous support of SLO City Parks Department,  

Opening Ceremony Can be see HERE

Video of complete trail coming soon!



Wednesday Morning Trail Work

Currently working on the new "Stenner Flow" Trail
The Wednesday morning trail workers have been busy planning and building a new trail below the Eucs running parallel to the Elevator Trail.  This new trail, designed by Neils Grether as a Poly senior project is being built by CCCMB under his guidance.  It is a bike oriented trail with lots of flow and berms and may be named the Stenner Flow Trail, although that is still up for debate.  It crisscrosses the old road that used to be the downhill bike route coming off of Shooters Trail, before Elevator was built.  
There is still a lot to be done and anyone who wants to join the Wednesday morning work group should meet at the last gate up Stenner Creek Road at 8:30am on Wednesday mornings.
