Rides from Epicenter

Our knowledgeable crew members can help you find the perfect trail to ride. Stop in for route recommendations, trail condition updates or to pick up a map. We have a large selection of road touring, mountain bike touring and bay area trail maps at both Epicenter locations. Proceeds from local state park maps go toward funding these amazing parks.

Santa Cruz Location: If you're in the Santa Cruz area, you can ride directly from our shop on Mission Street into Wilder Ranch State Park, or up the Emma McCrary mountain bike trail. For a relaxing ride around town, rent a cruiser and take a spin along the beautiful West Cliff Drive bike path to the Santa Cruz Wharf and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Popular road rides include Swanton loop and Empire Grade.

Aptos Location: Our shop is conveniently located at the entrance to one of the best parks in Santa Cruz - so you can head out from our Aptos shop right into Nisene Marks State Park or catch a ride up to the renowned single-track and flow trail at Soquel Demonstration State Forest with Dave of Shuttle Smith Adventures. Popular road rides include the Eureka Canyon Road and the Brown Valley - Hazel Dell loop.


Shuttle Smith Adventures and Party Bus

Shuttle Smith Adventures offers bike shuttles daily to the top of Nisene Marks, where you can challenge yourself on the single track loops of Soquel Demonstration Forest.  Enjoy the comfortable, scenic ride to the top and relax before exploring the trails made famous by locals Cam and Tyler McCaul, Greg Watts, Jamie Goldman and others. 

Shuttle Smith ALSO offers door-to-door shuttle service. Enjoy a night out without the hassle of designated drivers, parking and party in our party bus. Shuttle Smith has seating for 9, with the seats set up in a "U" shape that is perfect for an all night party.

Create Your Own Booze Cruz: You plan the route, we get you there. Give us a list of all the breweries, bars, wineries or clubs you would like to go to and we will do the driving. You do the drinking!
