Stump Grinder Dirt Club
Buellton CA 93427
Maybe you’re wondering just what the heck is the Stump Grinder Dirt Club? Well it’s the next evolution of Stump Grinder Productions, the small promoting company that has brought you the Firestone Classic, now known as the Santa Ynez Valley National, for the past 9 years. Starting in June the property that has been the site of great races will be open to paid members of the Stump Grinder Dirt Club. We will have more information about the SGDC very soon that will outline the goals, costs, and days of operation, benefits and the availability of theSG Dirt Club Volunteers club.
WHAT: Private location for mountain biking enthusiasts to enjoy their healthy lifestyle sport in a safe location completely removed from other trail users, this is to be a 100% conflict free riding area. With 2 different downhill trails, one super downhill trail, a dual slalom course, a 12 mile cross country course, and miles of dirt double track ranching roads, countless opportunities are provided for riders of all abilities to explore and have fun.
WHY: During a time of constant conflict between other trail users and mountain bike riders, not only in the Santa Barbara area, but all over the US, it just seems like a great full time use of the trail network that we have built here at the Stump Grinder Dirt Club over the past 10 years. In addition, we envision the SGDC hosting training camps, bicycle product launches, bicycle industry functions and other events.
WHEN: Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM for SGDC members and daily non-member visitors. Wednesday afternoons the SGDC will be open from 3 PM to dark for members only.
